Because of You: An Etched Memorial to a Father

“Because of You”


A young woman asked me to write a memorial for her father.  He was a World War II Air Force veteran and father to several children and he had several grandchildren too.  She had a photograph of him in his Air Force gear that she wanted to serve as the theme.  “Because of You” resulted.  I love writing family memories, because it is so interesting to learn about people’s lives.  She ordered several copies of this piece to give as gifts to her siblings.  I was honored to be able to give a lasting memory to the family.

I am including this piece as an example of what can be done to remember someone special.  I like to think that this too will be passed down to following generations. 

“Patriot, flyer, 

father, provider,

always reaching higher and higher.”

This item is not for sale, as it is a special memory about a special person.  But I can write one for you or your loved one.

An etched picture poem. Black matte.  Bronze colored frame.  11 by 14 inches.

It is a commissioned piece to remember a father, a WW II Air Force veteran, and a wise man.

I can write one for your loved one.  I love to write memorial pieces because it allows me to learn about people and their impact on their families and communities.  And it’s an heirloom!
