Haha, my fiance recently heard about this tradition – we decided he could give me half a wedding, and I would get him the other half of a wedding!

Are there any photos of your fiance’s grandfather that you might be able to incorporate into a gift? Or possibly write him a letter with the help of a family member “from his grandfather” saying even though he’s not here, he’s proud of your fiance, etc.?

I’m not sure, as you can probably guess from what I said above, gifts probably aren’t my strong point Wink

I’m not good at this either, how about a new wallet with a picture of Fiance and his grandfather inside? or maybe a pocketwatch with the photo inside?

Maybe contact the firehouse that him and his grandfather used to frequent and see if they have any memorabilia available.  Good luck!

My dads a fireman too so I can relate, so was his dad and his mom was the first woman firefighter in their dept. I can relate to that.

See if you can get your hands on a helmet and decopague a pic of him and his grandfather into the helmet, or make a shadowbox of pix of him and grandpa with equiptment inside, maybe a picture of a beloved old engine or a hose nozzle. I’m sure someone in the dept can help you out. Most depts have the old-timers who love to hang out and talk about the old days

what about finding a small locket and pinning it to his bout? That way his grandfather will be close to his heart.
