So...Kayleigh never met her grandmother, Ruth Ann Kilpatrick, who died of breast cancer before Kayleigh was born. Kayleigh wrote this when she got the painting, "anyone who is close to me knows that my biggest wish in life is that I could’ve met my Dad’s mom, Ruth Ann Kilpatrick. she died of breast cancer before I was born, which is why the fight for a cure is so near and dear to my heart. I know that things would be different if she were here and I miss her every day. Gran, my mom’s mom, always talks about how much my Grandma Ruth would have loved us. she and my grandfather have always gone above and beyond to fill the void in my heart with their endless support and love. my aunt Brandi and uncle James took it upon themselves to have a picture of her and a picture of me painted into one. I can officially say that not only do I have a picture with my grandmother but she was present with me at my graduation. This means the absolute world to me."

My sister was killed in a bank shooting on Jan 23, 2019. She left 3 children behind one of them is my niece who is graduating this year. I wanted to get her a graduation gift that would be meaningful. My sister will never be able to take a picture with her so I choose PaintYourLife to make that reality come true. We love it!! It brought us to tears. Thank you to the artist that painted it.

Our mom passed away the year of our youngest sister’s senior year. She didn’t make it to see her graduate. We all got pics of her at out graduation and she didn’t so we made her one.

I wanted to do something special for my niece who’s graduating high school this year. I wanted something meaningful and something she could have forever. In her painting, artist Anne, captured every detail and every ounce of love that my niece shared with her father, who passed away years ago. Two pictures came together into one beautiful piece. The painting is of my niece in her graduation uniform with her father next to her. She loves everything about it & I cannot thank you enough for this beautiful image that we get to keep forever.
