Commissioned in memory of a good Red taken too soon, this is a piece of work for which I dropped everything – waiting list or no waiting list – when a previous customer (Phil, who owns The Garage Wall banner) contacted me to tell me that his matchgoing friend Dava had tragically died a few days previously.

He asked if I might be able to move a few things around to have a banner ready for the funeral in a couple of weeks, so we set the ball in motion and a few days later, all the cutting is done – I am ready to lay it out today.

Update: the banner was completed in time for the funeral and for a celebration of Dava’s life a few days later. The flag became the perfect backdrop to these occasions, and the family were so pleased with it that they have since asked me to produce several replicas so that they can all have one.

    Thanks very much for making this for us, Davas spirit will live on home away and in Europe with this banner from myself and everyone at the garage wall thank you

    • Hi John. It was an absolute honour to make it for you. Phil shared some photos of Dava with me so that I had an idea of the man he was as I was crafting it, and he was in my thoughts through the whole process. I am so sorry for what you are going through, and I hope that my work brings you all some small comfort. Take care. YNWA.

    You are absolutely amazing!! I can’t thank you enough for what you’ve done for my baby bro. I have no words for what we are all experiencing as this should not be happening. However, I would like to thank you once again from the bottom of my heart. Lots of love Jane xxx

    • Hi Jane. I am so sorry for your loss and for the terrible time you must be going through. I hope that my work has brought you some small comfort. I know from Phil that your brother was dearly loved by his family and friends, and he was never far from my thoughts while I was making the banner. You are all in my prayers. YNWA.
