I'm so sorry about your grandpa.

How about embroidering some handkerchiefs for you dad?

Or writing a little "things I'll remeber about Grandpa" book?

I'm sorry about your grandpa.

My grandma just died a few weeks ago, and I decorated a picture frame with a bunch of old buttons I got from her and put a picture of her in it for my mom. It's kinda lame, but it really meant a lot to her. Maybe you could do something like that.

Find something that your dad and your grandpa did together, and decorate a picture frame with different things related to that, and put his picture in it.

Oh my gosh. That idea is perfect! Thank you so much. They both loved to fish together. I'm going to start working on this very very soon.

I'm so very sorry about your grandpa. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I would defnitely go with the picture idea. That way your father can always remember him and remember the fun times they had together. You could do a scrapbook, a frame, modge podge pictures onto a memory box.
