Sympathy cards are always difficult to make, especially when you make it with someone in mind. I wish I had a beautiful "with sympathy" stamp... will have to find one. And then I need to put together a few sympathy cards to have them on hand when I need them. No one wants to need a sympathy card, but alas, life happens.
An online friend of mine, Sheila, lost her Mom a few weeks ago after a battle with cancer. Sheila spoke to her Mom that afternoon and all was OK... around midnight that night, she had a call from her Dad that her Mom was gone.
I totally feel for Sheila.... losing my Dad was so difficult... I wasn't ready and I'm sure Sheila wasn't either.
I created what I believe to be a simple but elegant card for Sheila and her family, to let them know that I was thinking of them during this very difficult time.

Still thinking about your Sheila.... hoping you are doing OK!
