That is a terribly moving story. I am so very sorry for your loss! But what a wonderful way to remember him, I can just see all the love you and your family shared for him. I hope that this beautiful memorial helps you in this tough time.

How beautiful. My school did this for a teacher that had cancer, but we were also not granted our wish. We had well over 100 and many beautiful memorials were made with the cranes. I am very sorry for your loss.

I haven't been on craftster in quite some time, but for this to be one of the first projects I see when I return- WOW. it is stunning, and beautiful and all of the many things that others before me have said. If burning the remaining cranes brings you closure, then you should act on it by all means. I would like to point out how many people have come together to compliment you and express their sorrow for your loss, and to me it brings out some sort of karmic force, that so many of us commiserate with you... I guess what I'm trying to say in not quite as many words is that I think it would be lovely if you took the remaining cranes and gave them to others who are in/ have family in an intensive care unit, to share your wish with them that their loved ones get better. Take every bit of love you put into making each crane and continue to celebrate your Simon by passing along your tribute to others.

An amazing Memorial, and a crafty way to display so much beauty.

Very touching, and though I do not know you or Simon, I am truly sorry for your loss. (I know you've heard it enough, but one more time can't hurt)

I can't even tell you how this made me feel. My beloved brother is dying of cancer and reading your post has made me cry because it is so beautiful. My sincere condolences.
