A special baby gift

12 years ago

Here's a picture of my daughter Gillian, then a senior in high school, with a display of her artwork. The piece at the top was done in pastels. Sometime after she died (at age 25) I had it archivally framed and put away to wait for the occasion of my son's first baby. As you know, that occasion arrived last month. I gave the baby's parents the gift, and then we wrapped it back up to wait for the completion of their new house. It should be finished some time this year, and then Jill's painting will hang on the nursery wall. She was very close to her brother, and loved children, so I know this is something she'd want.
