“Father's Day”


Description from Granny Nancy: This is to both my late husband and late father. I had a fantastic dad who supported me but disciplined me when I needed and advised me when I asked. Family was everything to him as well as other people's families.

My husband was a workaholic and those tools are a tiny fraction of what fills all his work areas in this house. He was a technician who repaired computer controlled equipment and he built houses for us and he fixed everything that needed fixing. He was also an artist.

I added the mushroom because he LOVED mushrooms and the bronzite represents steak, which he loved with mushrooms. Every father's day when our family was young he was at the grill for hours. I miss them both so much.

    Oh Nancy, what a wonderful tribute ! Tools are such a guy thing, but we women learn how to use them, too. Shortly after I moved in with “my guy” several years ago, he bought me a new toolbox with all the essentials – - one of the nicest presents I’ve ever received (because it represented his confidence in me). Am glad that your heart is filled with such warm and loving memories – - -

    My father is gone too, we keep them in our hearts. A love of good tools is something I shared with him and now with my husband. Hugs to you.
