Default Help - ISO grandfather quotes, kits, word art

DH's grandgather is getting ready to pass away from his battle with cancer. We think it will be in the next day or so. I just got some photos taken of him with my kids last week when he was still awake and would really love to scrap them into some sort of memorial for him. Possibly even to give him before he passes, if we make it there in time.

SO, I'm looking for anything that could help me get this done quickly...particulary poems, quotes or word art. And if anyone has any kit suggestions...I'd like something masculine, but springy if possible! TIA!

i have a really nice (well, i think so) overlay/word art that i made for mommyspice in remeberance of joey-bear. i used it on a layout for a tribute/memorial to my papa. i would be more than happy to give it to you to use if you'd like. i know how hard times like these can be - i'll keep your family in my prayers. i would love to make you some word art as a RAK of sorts if you find some quotes or poems that you like. there was a really good one at my great-grandad's funeral...but i will have to look for it. let me know if you're interested.

Here are some of the quotes I have made into word art:
"Life gives us brief moments with another...but sometimes in those brief moments, we get memories that last a lifetime."
"Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy." -Eskimo proverb

The overlay says, "Your body is not the real you. It's just the physical house you live in. The real you is your spirit, which will live on forever." -David Brandt Berg

What about a premade album, this one from Shabby Princess is really nice.

I love these! I need to do a layout for my dad that passed away last week. Thank you so much. I was feeling pretty crummy and haven't scrapped in over a month but I think it would be good therapy to do a layout about him.(and my mom)
