Like everyone, I too am so sad to hear of your loss. The memorial is beautiful though. Truly unique and amazing.

I hope you and yours can find solace and peace.

I am very sorry for your loss. Your way of creating this way to memorize him is absolutely beautiful and very moving. I am sure it must have been so very very hard to lose him. I wish lots of luck and strength for you and his other loved ones.

And here is another legacy of your Simon. We here had never met him, but feel sadness at his passing because of the tribute you share with us. The crame memorial is stunning.

I'm so sorry for your loss.  I remember reading the story in school Sadako and the thousand paper cranes.  I even remember learning how to fold them.  While I've forgotten over time how to fold them, I never forgot what 1000 paper cranes meant.  I am so sorry for your loss, and I wish your wish had been met.  What you did with the cranes is a very beautiful and loving tribute to your Simon.

What a beautiful job you did here. I feel for you in your loss, that is never easy. Cry
The best part though is that, either by just these gorgeous cranes, or believing in what you do- I hope you know he is always with you.
Take care. :3

what a lovely tribute to a very special man who clearly left his mark on those who loved him. thank-you for the courage to share your story. grief is such a painful, heartbreaking process. i wish you strength and healing and hope your creative gifts will be a refuge in this difficult time.
