Make a Monument Plaque

Make a Monument Plaque

You need a somewhat padded work surface, such as an ironing board or a folded towel. Center a print-out of your text, upside-down, on a foil cookie sheet, using masking tape to hold it in place. Then use an ordinary ball-point pen, and trace over the lettering. Turn it over. Now that lettering is raised like a real plaque!
Next, trim away the outer rim of the cookie sheet, carefully -- the cut edges are sharp! -- and then cut along the edges of the print-out. Use a black Sharpie to make your lettering stand out. Remove the print-out and draw a 1/2" line within the perimeter of your now 8-1/2" by 11" plaque. This line is easy reference for your next step of covering that exterior edge with black electrical tape.
To add rigidity, I cut blue insulating styrofoam the same size, covered its edges with black electrical tape, and used tacky glue to hold the foil to the foam. Lastly, I added 4 screws to the corners for a finished look.

Addison Kathelene Reynolds

6 Month has passed since you left us
Months of sadness and pain
Months of wishing we could be back
all together again
They say time is a healer
In time the pain becomes easier to bear
But the pain we feel in our hearts is still
and always will be there
Your up in heaven now
Up there with Jesus
Away from it all
A beautiful baby girl

In tears we knew you sinking,
And as you pass away
Our hearts were almost broken,
We wanted you to stay.
But when we saw you sleeping,
So peaceful, free from pain,
How could we wish you back with us,
To suffer that again.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you,
The day God took you home.

Days have turned into Months.
Some days are better than other.
Not one day has gone by with out
thinking and missing our baby girl.
We all love you Addison!
