Project Information

My wife lost her mother at the end of last year and a buddy of mine lost a infant granddaughter… Made these solar powered grave markers for them to use until the headstones were set in place . The landscape lights are just a few dollars apiece at any big box stores and fully self contained. I just disassembled them then attached to the crosses using lag bolts and a washer. Didn't have the room for the little girls full name to be routed on that cross so I ordered a brass plate to go on it instead. A simple and inexpensive way to show your respect.

So sorry for your loss Buster. The cross looks nice and it's a wonderful thing you did making these. I like the light idea. I have the same solar lights in pic #1 on my deck posts they work very well.

Never good news to hear of the loss of a loved one. What you did is kind and memorable. You're a good man Buster.
They look great and will never be forgotten.

Swirt- thank you!!!

Tony- thank you!!! I wish I had thought of that. I went with the stainless steel step lights and they suck pretty bad. Already replaced half of them…

Dave- thank you. Not sure of the good man part. I have had a grudge against my in-laws since they didn't run me off 35 some odd years ago…lol
