Dad's Railroad Watch
The railroad watch belonged to my father. My wife purchased the train ornament for Dad a few days prior to his passing on the 16th of December. We placed them on the family wreath during the funeral service. I know this isn't the most cheerful Ruby Tuesday during the holiday season, but I felt the need to post it anyway.

Oh that is so sweet of you guys...no you are not alone by putting a remembrance of your beloved loved ones who passed away...I just put a key chain which has a face of my step-daughter on the Christmas tree..I told my hubby I am not going to use it as a key chain it might broke because the design is a glass angel..I do think it is so fragile so I made it as a Christmas ornament. That feels us good too ...Happy New Year!!ReplyDelete
