Hi all -
I have a question on plaque wording in the attached file. My question concerns the "Presented Posthumously In Memory Of". Is this a good wording or should I eliminate "Presented Posthumously"? Or In Memory of? Thank you for any help. Sometimes the wording of a plaque is almost as difficult as the plaque itself...

I would drop those words, they are implied by the In Memory of part.

I agree with Matt. Eliminate the presented line of text.

I would say Awarded Posthumously and drop the "in memory of" and I would put that below the name.

Thank you all. I think I will show both ways you have suggested here to my customer and let them decide. My friends here on the Creek are AWESOME!! Thank you again

I would say if he died in the line of duty, use Presented Posthumously.
If he died from other causes, us In Memory Of

However, it is up to the customer, not the engraver.
