My friends grandpa just died today and she sent me what she wrote for herself to read at the funeral. At the end she mentioned that he had told her to write in the sand (sort of more complex-he got into what/how-she said he was babbling and his mind was pretty much gone) but she promised him she would and she'd bring her future husband/kids to and always think of him when she did. Well holidays are coming up, as we all know and while I was starting to decorate a box for her, I am now thinking of making or buying her one of those little sand gardens.
Is that a dumb idea? I mean assumably he meant the sand on beaches, not a little box of sand with some rocks in it. Would it be too soon/too much of a downer for a Christmas present?
