Leo Guenette’s classmates at J.E. Benson Public School in Windsor, Ontario, had Christmas wish lists full of iPods and video games. But Leo’s had an unusual entry — a gravemarker for his beloved grandmother.

When teacher Michelle Landry saw his request, she went about making the boy’s wish come true.
