McKenzie Memorial Stone


In yesterday's blog, I posted pictures of some of my mommy's stained glass projects. Today she got to unmold her very first stepping stone. It's a memorial to my brother McKenzie. She used all green glass, to mimic the grass that McKenzie loved to roll in, and took a favorite picture of him laying in the grass and sandwiched it between a clear sheet of glass and more green glass. Mommy's going to put it in the garden where he liked to lay, right under the bird feeder. She put it there for a test run. She still has to put the sealer on it before she can put it in the garden permanently where she'll level and put it down securely in the barkdust.

That is very very beautiful! What a wonderful tribute to McKenzie. And you can visit his memorial in your lovely garden and remember him. I think McKenzie would really like that.

What a beautiful memorial to McKenzie, he looks so happy rolling in the grass in the picture. And then to be outdoors where he enjoys it the most...he must be smiling from his viewpoint at the Bridge.

Zoey: Please tell your momma that she couldn't have created a more fitting or beautiful memorial to McKenzie than that one. It is breathtaking. She is truly a gifted artist.

Good Golly, Your Mom is talented!!! That is a wonderful tribute to McKenzie! Stained Glass is a hobby our Mom has wanted to try. But she just taught herself how to crochet a couple years ago, so she is still working on that.
