I was doing some research on a flown item that I have that was onboard Apollo 13.

Fred Haise took a crucifix from his aunt’s rosary and a Masonic ring for a friend. Except for the weight of the rosary, he said he would have taken the entire rosary, beads and all.

The item that I have is the crucifix.

Do you have any information from Fred Haise on the provenance of the rosary item?

It was given to a family member from the Haise’s after the flight. I have pictures as well as other items.
