In Memory

My grandfather passed away Saturday, June 30th. My grandmother asked me to draw something representative of his life—books, music, God, and medicine. All the more fitting to post on the Fourth because he also loved his country.

  1. My condolences for your loss. This a beautiful tribute, Aubrie. Thank you for sharing it with us here. Bless you and yours ❤

    Please accept my condolences also.

    Is that a medical symbol on the cross?


  3. Dear Aubrie, Sending love and prayers…what a wonderful gift for your grandmother and family. Ellen

    • Aubrie Cox says:

      Thank you, Ellen. Much appreciated. Originally this (the illustration, the ‘ku was my own doing for me, myself, and I) was meant to be on the cover of the church bulletin at the funeral service, though my grandmother was told they don’t do those anymore.

  4. Eternal rest grant unto him oh Lord and let your perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through Your mercy, rest in peace, Amen.

  5. So sorry to hear of your grandfather’s passing, Aubrie.

    Hey, Aubrie, so sad with you about your grandfather. I thought it was so cool that your grandmother would ask you to draw something…a cool way of honoring him (and her).

    for those with no stone
    memory rock hard in the heart

    I pray all your memories are lovely and gentle and kind…. I didn’t know what to say to your post that would hold what I felt…. till I came across a photo a fellow in New Zealand posted called “Remembrance”… All that’s ever left is love, but if there’s love it is all.

  10. Such a beautiful way of honoring your grandfather!!! sorry for your loss.
