Anyway, I thought it would be fitting to end the month with another keepsake I have. Some things I'll keep forever, and this is one of them. Andrew loved lacrosse shorts, as we all know, but he also had quite the t-shirt collection. After Matt and Natalia took the t-shirts they wanted to keep, I sent the rest off to be made into a blanket. They really do tell the story of his life. Here it is.
The top row - sort of tough to see - but these were shirts from vacations and one from our church.
The next three rows were all about his love of Nike, motorcycles, the Braves, video games, and of course - the USA red, white, and blue!
Next up is Duluth Lacrosse - he loved that game.
The last row was how he supported breast cancer - a cause close to our hearts having lost my step-mom to the disease in 2000 and then nearly losing my aunt a few years ago (she is doing well now)!
This is such a fabulous blanket and it is totally Andrew. Now I am ready for fall and winter as I have two amazing blankets (remember the one his team at work gave me with pictures) to keep me warm.
I miss you buddy! Stupid motorcycle.
