It is difficult to erase wonderful memories that you spent with your beloved one who suddenly passes away. Maria Challis, in an attempt to keep the memory of her late husband, Paul, created a 6-foot-1 cardboard cut-out of him.

The cut-out features one of the family's happiest moments, in which Mr. Challis is holding a bottle of champagne and laughing while on board a QE2 cruise to Belgium. Maria Challis's cardboard cut-out even attended her husband's funeral and also friend's weddings. Their children also decorated the cut-out as a Santa at Christmas and Dracula on Halloween.

Paul Challis passed away only weeks after being diagnosed with two cancerous brain tumors. Mrs. Challis also runs the Wirral Race For Life to raise money for cancer research.
