A few weeks before his birthday I emailed all of the family and asked people to email me something they love about him.
I thought of putting them together in a book but knew it would end up sitting on the shelf.
My husband came up with the idea for a collage. So, I created a document that said, "70 Reasons Why We Love Bruce" with little talk bubbles. I got almost double the responses but included at least one from each person then printed the total list for him.
I printed the document 12 X 16, matted it, framed it and shipped it off.
I wasn't able to be there for his party but I was told there was laughter and tears as he read through each one.
It was a great reminder, as I saw all of the responses coming in, of how wonderful a man he is and just how much he gives to others. I hope he treasures it.
I know many of you have asked for the template and I sent it out to a few. But, my hard drive has since crashed and I no longer have the file. I'm sorry I can no longer share it.
