Default Thanks Steve and Andy

Yes I finally finished it thanks to these two men for their help in doing this. I am giving it to my niece on Christmas day and I hope she likes it. I am not really talented to do scroll saw work but I gave it my all and I hope I did as good a job as to what Steve and Andy did. Many THANKS to both of you I will be doing another one for my Sister since it was her grandson who died so here is the picture all done. James

Brought a tear to my eye seeing this. Thank you for sharing the completed portrait. You may feel that you are "not talented" ... it looks terrific to me and knowing the caring and love behind the effort ... priceless. Thank you again.

Be sure and pass on Holiday greetings from me and may they know the troops and families behind those troops are in my thoughts and prayers. I missed my share of holiday celebrations serving the good ol' USA and am proud of my time in, but I know the hardships it creates. To suffer a loss like your niece has, some of us, hopefully only a few, know this level of sacrifice given to protect our freedom. The families behind the soldiers who gave their 100%, quite literally their all, deserve our support as much as any others.

Shoot for the moon. If you miss you'll be headed for a star! www.80artdesigns.com
