There's a personal story behind this so I'm looking for three factors or figures. First, Christianity or Baptism symbol. Second, The year 1987 in roman numerals which is MCMLXXXVII symbol. And third, a father figure symbol. Please marry them together and make it fun :-)
Here are some reference that you can play with :-)
1st) Christianity: a Cross or a Prayer maybe.. .
2nd) Father figure:
a lion maybe or any aplha male figure or a skull.. .
3rd) Year 1987:
Anything you want to do with the 1987 numeral symbol will do :-)
