This is the plaque I made for my grandpa the Christmas before he died. I cut all the letters out myself with Scott's scroll saw, then decorated them. I forgot to take a picture, but then had another chance when I went out for his funeral in the Spring. My grandfather was not LDS, and never very good with relationships, so I wanted to give him a message as he neared the end of his life. The top picture is of his 2 daughters, the middle picture is my mother's 5 biological children. (Because this grandpa wasn't good with being a grandpa he didn't ever really know my half siblings.) The bottom picture is of my 4 kids - his only biological grandchildren so far. I really have no idea what he thought of it, but I can hope he at least thought about it a litte.
