With Sadness. . .

My husband and I recently received news that the wife of a good friend, with whom my husband worked for many years before retirement, lost her battle with cancer.  In Mary Ann's memory, I made this card to send to her husband, Gary.

The inside is composed with some lovely words that we recently received on a sympathy card in memory of my husband's mother's death.  I hope Gary finds them equally comforting.

Though sympathy cards are not always easy to make because of their subject matter and their need, I have often found that during the process I am able to thoughtfully think of the person that has left us for a better place.  In some strange way, those memories bring healing and comfort.
