Distinguished Friend

“Always to be best,

and distinguished

above the rest.”

— Homer

“Most lives are not distinguished by great achievements. They are measured by an infinite number of small ones. Each time you do a kindness for someone, or bring a smile to his face, it gives your life meaning. Never doubt your value, little friend. The world would be a dismal place without you in it.” — Lisa Kleypas

With the name of a past president, and growth of the classic white hairs of a respected elder, Lincoln appears to be as much a distinguished statesman as a kind and cherished 16-year-old friend to Andrea and Rob. — Watercolor pet portrait painting by Mary O’Connor

  1. You have not only captured his physical persona but also the love that we share for him. Lincoln is truly our family statesman and we cannot thank you enough for creating a timeless representation.
