Funny how He is always challenging me, especially when I think I’m at my limit and barely have time to breath, much less take on another woodworking task.
A few weeks ago, my wife’s co-worker lost his dad. We went to the wake to give our condolences and support. It wasn’t really a surprise, as he’d been fighting with cancer for several years.
Last night, she came home and said Frank had a request for me, if I was willing to help them. I don’t know if my wife suggested I help him because of my aversion to the topic of death… or in spite of it.
He said they had to wait six months before putting the granite grave marker in place at his father’s grave – something about allowing the ground to settle. But he and his mom would like to have something at his grave temporarily, in case anyone came to visit it.
So I need to start working on a design. I’m not even sure on the proportions I should follow.
Anyone have any experience with making crosses? Mark?
I’ll write more tonight; I have to get to PT (for the lower back).
