A News On 6 graphic designer recreated a font that looked like his grandfather's handwriting so he could give his grandmother the perfect birthday present.

Charles Lingerfelt decided to turn his grandfather's handwriting into a font so he could recreate a piece of poetry to give to his grandmother. Though he has made countless beautiful images for News On 6, this was a special project, all on his own. 

"She started crying when she saw it," Lingerfelt said. 

Lingerfelt created the font using his computer skills and printed the poem.

"Once upon a time there was a beagle and a pigeon and when you saw one of them, you're bound to see all two," the poem said.
