Journaling says: When Mom was expecting Chris, Dad worked in secret to build a special gift for her and the baby. It was a beautiful handmade cradle. He wisely purchased the mattress first and built the cradle around it. Mom was amazed when he finally presented it to her. All of us slept in that cradle for the first few months. Now that Chris is expecting his first child, another generation will get to sleep in the cradle. It is wonderful that little Juno will have a small connection to Dad through the beautiful gift he made all those years ago.
