A Tribute Book

This tribute book is for my father who passed away on the 5th of February 2022. 
Made with the pages of the #buriedearthbookproject. 
The fabric pages of the book which was buried and unearthed after close to three months were quite fragile.
I thought it was fitting to make a book with the fragile fragments appliqued onto pages of unbleached cotton. 

The verse from 2 Timothy 4:7 was what we chose to have engraved on the headstone.
My sister wrote a beautiful tribute message which she read out at the memorial service. I had her handwrite the same in a little booklet which is put into a pocket.

A mild mannered person who loved the outdoors, animals and was always up for travel and adventure. He was a basketball player and watched cricket matches and tennis on television.He loved caramel custard and laddus. 
There was a laddu in each snack box which was given out at the memorial service.
A card distributed during the memorial service is there in two other pockets.
He is remembered very fondly and with deep respect by friends, family and the members of the church he belonged to.

Thank you Cheryl, yes it did me some solace and it was adequate at a time when my mother, sister and I were together grieving his passing.
