A Tribute to my Father-in-Law
This is a picture I drew of my father-in-law, Richard Rakestraw. He left this world last February and is sorely missed. I drew it for my husband and my mother-in-law in the hopes that they would have happy memories every time they saw it. It is hard when you are missing someone who has passed on. You can’t just call them on the phone or send them an email. When you lose someone who is really special to you, it creates a hurt deep inside that it takes a long time to heal. It doesn’t matter if you lose a spouse, a friend, a parent or a child… it hurts. I hope that my gift will help those people special to me to feel a little better when they enjoy the picture.
