Dadís memorial service was a beautiful celebration of his life. Someone from work drove his Allis Chalmers tractor that he had re- stored and parked it right in front of the funeral home during the visitation. Mom and I displayed scrapbook pages, a few of his favorite tractor and seed company baseball caps, his firemanís jacket and a firemanís uniform. There were flowers and greenery all over the place. Though Christopher was quite sad when we first arrived, he quickly made friends with the dog and Michael made friends with the cat who live there. They are truly therapy animals. The Atlantic Fire Department showed up en masse, most of the men and women from work and countless family and friends. The quote below is a blended photo of a stone plaque given to Mom that evening. At the end of the evening, Mom and Dadís good friends, the Bustas were able to come from Forest City. The boys posed near the tractor out front.



    Cheri, your memory pages about your Dad brought tears to my eyes as I read your journaling - such a sweet tribute to him! He would be so proud! Your pages are beautifully done - the pictures are just wonderful! I hope that scrapping these memories was healing for you, sweetie!
    Such a beautiful and heartfelt page, Cheri! Your journaling about each photo is so touching and I love the quote on the stone plaque. Hugs!
    What a wonderful way to remember your dad...I love how you blended the plaque into your LO and your journaling is wonderful. So sorry for your loss.
    Lovely page and touching journaling of a sad time. I am sorry for your loss. It's wonderful that you could share all the positive things about his life through scrapbook pages, his tractor, his caps, and his fireman gear. The plaque and it's quote is perfect for this time and page.
    I admired this template and I love seeing it in action. The colors are beautiful as is the journaling. You did a great job on this. It is a very special tribute to you dad. Thanks for sharing it with us.
