My husband and I had the joy of having our grandson in our home the majority of his school years, sharing and guiding his life choices and encouraging his pursuits and applauding his accomplishments. He recently graduated from high school, and he went to the local Hallmark store to purchase appreciation gifts for my husband and me, as well as his mom and dad. He chose the Willow Tree Grandfather Grandchild Figurine to give to his "Papa" as a memento of the years of support and love. Also, he chose a Willow Tree Love My Dog Figurine - Blonde to go with the Grandfather Grandchild Figurine, as we have had a blonde Labrador Retriever as part of our family for years, so the two together portray the bond between the growing child and his grandparent and the beloved family pet. When my grandson presented the thank you gifts to us and my husband opened his, it brought tears to his eyes. I am guessing this is Willow Tree's goal, as they offer sentimental portrayals as keepsakes of precious moments in life. These two figurines were spot on for this extra special occasion in our family's life.
