My PawPaw (my dad's dad) passed away February 22, 2019. He always talked about being ready to go to Heaven to be with my MawMaw who passed away when I was a little kid. His time finally came and the youngest and I were able to go down there for the funeral, which meant the world to me.
After he passed away I started thinking about what I wanted to get my dad for Christmas. I have a friend who draws/paints pictures and she did one shortly after my PawPaw passed away and it looked AMAZING. I started to talk to her about how she does her work and told her my idea. She said she could do it and I spent the next few month's sending her money to pay for it.
I flew home and Friday morning we went to her house to pick it up. And I loved every inch of it. It looked so amazing. I knew that my dad would love it. My idea was a picture of the two of them together again in Heaven. She made my vision come true!
The pictures below are my dad opening it.
