Hope Faith Love

I was contacted by a very sweet woman with a very sad tale - her 36 yr. old husband was told that he had a terminal illness, with only a few months left.  She thought a simple hand cast with their father would be a loving memory for each of their 3 children (9, 6, & 1).  In addition to these casts (shown below), I suggested a "family" cast...  the father holding out his hands side-by-side, offering everything he has left for his family...  the mother with her hands cradling his, offering comfort and support... then each of their three children, holding on.  After I made the cast for them, I noticed the inscription on the wife's bracelet... "HOPE FAITH LOVE"... what a wonderful thought for what they were sharing.

May these casts be a loving memory for them in the years to come.
