Hi Landshark,
I'm so sorry to hear that. No relationship is perfect, but with time we begin to remember more of the good and forget the "less good." My dad passed in 2009. My husband asked for his watch to have something personal to keep with him, so even thought it may not remind you of things you did together, you can still hopefully keep something of his that he used or enjoyed, to remember the good times.

I wanted to post some of his wagons here to help encourage other wagonsmiths to show off theirs and jumpstart some discussions on building techniques and such. There are so few wagonsmiths out there now... And we NEED them in the hobby. Plus, I love seeing what they create!
