Sympathy Card


Sadly, I had to make this sympathy card for a friend who lost her husband after his long fight with cancer. He will be missed by a lot of people serving many years as a firefighter then training fellow firefighters.  We met through the Craftmad's annual get together, he was chief photo taker, Kaye's right hand man for organising and helped in anyway he could.  He put up with a bunch of Craft Mad ladies for a week at his house once a year and always had a cheeky glint in his eye.



Goodbye Ron.

This is a lovely mosaic that Kaye made with over 20,000 mosaic beads click here for more info.

  4. What a lovely tribute you have paid to Ron here, Merry. Honestly death is a great wisdom provider and tells us how fragile life is and above all inspite of everything life must go on.

    Your card is very classy and black and white is one of the best colour combos to my mind.

    Thanks for the visit and kind words. I know I owe you an email since your dad passed but you have been in my thoughts and I have been sending you healing.

    Blessings,

    Monica

    1. Thanks Monica, yes death is a good reminder to take that chance or do what you really want to do while you can and not keep putting it off. it's all good about an email Monica, I know you are around with the comments here in blogland, life is good for me and the family we just have our quiet little memory moments throughout the day, or week.
