Keepsakes for Families

Offering custom wood keepsakes for families from Sandy Hook Elementary School

After hearing about the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, I wanted to try and help comfort in some small way those whose lives have been totally changed by the senseless event that took place on Friday, December 15, 2012.

I am an artist and work with wood.  I have many custom keepsakes available on my website that I would like to offer as a token to any family member affected by
the horrible tragedy.  This may not be the time for anyone to consider when dealing with grief and the surrounding emotions so I am offering an unlimited time period.  My work is museum quality and not mass produced so hopefully the keepsakes will provide a memorial of peace and comfort.

My website and facebook page have all the contact information needed and I would hope that maybe anyone who reads this will share it with a family from this dreadful incident.
