How meaningful it is to all of us at Canvas on Demand when we are asked to create a canvas as a memorial for a customer’s loved one.
Helen’s idea is so unique and sensitive. Her daughter had a tough pregnancy and gave birth to a premature baby she later lost. So Helen beautifully compiled postings from Facebook to remind her daughter of the journey she had taken over that year. We turned it to a lovely canvas for her. “It was her favorite gift,” Helen told us. How comforting this reminder must be for her. She is blessed to have such a thoughtful and loving mother!
Tracy also has a canvas that serves as a reminder: “It is of the last family vacation before I lost my Dad. Every time I look at this canvas, I will always remember that his wish to do this trip came true. You guys are great!” I loved reading this story, Tracy! What a wonderful memory. you have created. When we asked Tracy about her experience with Canvas on Demand, she replied, “I have 11 of them, need I say more?? Love it!!”
D P explained that his canvas is created from an image at Arlington National Cemetery of his grandfather’s marker with an American flag. “My grandfather passed away in 2003, and I was able to attend the ceremony and burial. There was no headstone at the time, but several years later I visited at Memorial Day when every grave was marked with a flag. I finally captured a picture of it for my Grandmother. This canvas is spectacular and seems almost 3D when seen in person. I’ve made three canvases so far, with frames and without. All have turned out spectacular.” D P, you really have made our day with your kind remarks.
How creative and poignant is this next canvas that Carol asked us to put on canvas. “My Grandfather was born in Alia Sicily in 1898 and immigrated to the US at the age of 23. He never returned to Alia and never saw his family again. In 2009, my sisters and I started planning a trip to Alia to walk in the town where my Grandfather was born. We took the trip in 2010 and visited the church where my Grandfather was baptized. The hands in the photo are those of the parish priest and the book he is holding is open to the entry in 1898 listing my Grandfather’s baptism. The earliest entries in the volume were dated 1821. I couldn’t have been more pleased. I plan to purchase more from them in the future.”
