Pattern by Gary Browning

World, Frank SGT died in Afghanistan . From Buffalo , NY . Leaving his wife , a 3 year old son , and a 2 month old daughter that he has never seen .

They are only 1- 2 hours from me , I have been thinking about delivering it personally and also thinking of mailing it. Having a hard time figuring what I would say to her if I delivered it .

That’s a tough one. I believe you made it as a token of support and respect for an American Hero who made the ultimate sacrifice for his family and country. Every parent, spouse, and child can understand his families loss and their pain. It might be easier to write a letter to go with it. However if you delivered it yourself, that simple act would speak volumes.

The portrait looks great by the way!

Please deliver it. You won’t be sorry, no matter how you express your self. Your work speaks for you.
Great job and a wonderful tribute.

Fantastic work.

Deliver it if you can – even if you don’t say a word except “Thank You”.

Don’t worry about not knowing what to say, the words will come in the moment. In the years to come, you will regret not delivering it.

I agree with everyone above. One of my duty assignments in the Navy included meeting and assisting families on the loss of their loved one. I must admit it is one of the most difficult tasks I have ever had to perform. It was also a memory that will last my lifetime. Honoring our fallen in any way nourishes your soul. It will also give a feeling of peace, if that is possible, to those left behind. Your work is beautiful and will be greatly appreciated.
