Stories Behind the Script: Jenna's Story

There's a certain kind of love we all hope for. It's not a fairy tale love, where everything is perfect. It's more than that. This love is real and raw and beautiful. It's filled with laughter and tears, hope and disappoint. It's neither a beginning nor an end, but a journey shared between two souls.

I saw a glimpse of this love when I read this poem by Jenna's grandfather written to her grandmother for their 58th wedding anniversary.

Jenna's grandfather, Jack, passed away earlier this year. To celebrate and honor her grandfather, Jenna had two versions of this poem lettered for her family. I cannot express the level of gratitude I felt to be able to letter this piece for Jenna and her family. What a beautiful reminder of the things that are most important in this world. Thank you for sharing this piece of your family with me, Jenna!
