My husbands grandmother passed away a few months after our oldest turned 1, the last pictures that we have of her are from his 1st Birthday, I wanted to do something different for my husband for Christmas this year and get him something that was personal, special, and would mean the world to him. He was very close to his grandmother and took her death pretty hard. So I sent to PaintYourLife.com a picture of his grandmother holding our oldest on his 1st birthday and a picture of myself holding our youngest on his 1st birthday. I had them basically put the two pictures together, so that it looked like she was holding both of them, the finished product was amazing. And to say he LOVED IT is an understatement, he cried like a baby! Mission Accomplished!!

The photo is my dad and my kids. My father passed away on May 2nd, 2016. He was my best friend. My rock. I don`t have many photos with him, and I got pregnant with my first child, my son, at 18, 4 months after he passed. I had my second baby, my daughter, January 9th, 2020. I know he would`ve loved his grandbabies so much. To see an image of the 3 together, and how happy and blissful he looks while "holding" them, meant the world to me. Thank you so much for this. I`m so grateful.

My grandmother, my mother’s mother, passed away in 2015. My mother was very close with her mother. When my beautiful niece was born in 2019, we always said her great grandma was watching over her. I wanted to get this painting for my mother of her mother holding the baby since they never had the chance to meet. My mother absolutely loved the painting and seeing them together! Thank you for making her so happy!

In November 2019 my great grandmother passed of lung cancer. I delivered my daughter Grace a month later in December of 2019, which would’ve been our 5th generation. A few hours before my great grandmother passed, the last thing she said to me was concerning the baby. My great grandmother was extremely dear to my grandfather, he was her firstborn of 5 children. I found @paintyourlife.com on Facebook and reached out to them about recreating a younger photo of my great grandmother and a recent photo of my daughter, hand-painted to gift to my grandfather for his birthday. He absolutely loved it! Thank you so much! In November 2019 my great grandmother passed of lung cancer.

My wife was very close to her grandparents. Our first son was lucky to have met both, but your youngest son was born after they had both past away. We named our son after her grandfather and she wished our youngest could have met them both. For Mother`s day I decided to get her painting with all of them so she could see our youngest son with them.

My mom lost her father 2 yrs ago. It was very hard on her. On all of us since we are an extremely close family. We all had a very strong bond with him and I mean ALL of us especially his 8 great grandchildren. He loved them so much and they loved him, like seriously adored their great grandfather. The day of his funeral I put my head on his and with the unstoppable tears flowing down I asked him to please fill this void in all our hearts cuz we knew the road ahead was gonna be a bumpy one. Just two weeks after his passing we found out I was expecting. Then this little girl that I named Luna came into our lives and filled it with love, joy and laughter. She has been such a blessing. My grandfather would have absolutely went crazy over this girl and she would have loved him so much. It hurts me to my core that she wont get the chance to meet him but this picture shows exactly how that bond would have looked like. I know he is watching over her everyday. So my brothers and I thought of this perfect gift for my mom for her birthday. And it was definitely worth it.
