each piece of art was individually wrapped and when i opened the first one i wept. i can not even begin to tell you how this gesture of love touched the very core of my being.
each candle is numbered, there will only be 100 cooper candles, ever, and inside each handle was a piece of paper which contained these words:
"in celebration of cooper austin snyder gerenski. flower petals surround the flame, handle connects hand to heart, interior heart line of cooper hawk, black white and spotted red feathers, carved path on 4 sides."
so, what am i going to do with these candles you may wonder? they are available for a minimum of a $25 donation, which will then be given to the ronald mcdonald house within the hospital in coopers name. i plan on having them at coopers service, but if you dear reader want one, please email me.
i can think of no better way to honor my cooper than to find a way to continue to help others in need with money raised from this amazing artwork. and dear readers these candles are more than art, they are the heart and soul of an amazing woman who is trying to help mend the heart of grieving parents, by honoring their most precious son.
