Grandpa's Cross

My Grandpa recently passed away, so I drew a cross for him, i wanted it to be unique so i didn't do the normal tribal markings,but filled it with holes to show how i feel, like i have a hole in me.I have a more twisted but smaller cross but that one i put a bit much sadness into, so i decided this one. This was done in P&I for Mr. Spence Tatchell My dad's dad. He was a great man who served in world war II He had a long and happy life and was married to my grandma for around 60+ years.He died of Alzheimers and everyone will miss him. Including me, I never got to say goodbye, considering he missed everyone and whenever we left he would get upset and try to come with us, so the last time i saw him i never even got to hug him goodbye, this I thought was a proper way to say goodbye. Goodbye Grandpa, we all love and miss you. Allanna

beautiful. I love your work, because you usually have a reason to make it. when reading your description, I had tears in my eyes. I think it is wonderful you made this for him, and keep up the good work. I'm sorry about your grandfather Allanna. Truly sorry. My grandfather recently had heart surgery, and we were all so scared for him. But thankfully he got through it. So I kind of know how you feel. I wish you great strength with getting through this. ~Abby
