Chinese Symbols ~ Goodness, Fortune, and Life

CRW_1995.CRWI asked what these symbols represent. MJ Klein responded on flickr telling me they are classic traditional Chinese Characters/Symbols, like those used in Taiwan. They represent Goodness, Fortune, and Life. A long time question has finally been answered. The quest for the answer became more immediate over Thanksgiving as one of my grandchildren asked. I promised a reply. Now, I can deliver on that promise. Thanks to MJ and to his wife, Hui Chen Chu, for their help. This shot gives a better perspective of how they are displayed.
