From the Hive Appeal website:

The Dragonfly in Paradise mural at Jenna Rosine’s Edward Jones office serves as a reminder to live life to the fullest. The Fiesta Hibiscus flowers represent respect, love, friendship, family, and feminine energy. The Bird of Paradise flower represents staying open to new possibilities, finding freedom, and exploring the world with a sense of optimism and excitement. The Dragonfly symbolizes transformation in perspective and the understanding of the deeper meaning of life. It’s also commonly thought to be a visitor from heaven. He has 22 in its eyes, as a nod to the late SPC Kaleb George. At age 22 he lost the war at home, one of the 22 veterans we lose each day to suicide. Like this mural, Kaleb was bright, bold, vibrant, colorful, engaging and inspirational. Like the dragonfly, he lived a short but full and meaningful life.
