Sympathy


This is the hardest kind of card I find I make. Mainly due to the occasion. We had a wonderful young man from our church die in a car accident on the weekend so the funeral is on Friday. This card is for his wife (who was in the car). They have been married a little over a year and are just the sweetest people. My heart breaks for her. I pray for peace beyond our understanding to comfort her in the days to come.

Please extend my prayers to her...it is sometimes hard to understand His master plan when tragedies unfold, especially to young people who have their whole life ahead of them. You have created a wonderful card despite such a sad occasion. (((Hugs))))

It always saddens me to hear stories like this and at the same time it makes me appreciate my husband all that much more. I'm sure your kind gesture will mean a lot to her during this very difficult time.

Sherrie,

What a terrible tragedy. Your card is beautiful and I'm sure it will bring some comfort to her. It's so difficult to make sense of a loss like this. I'll pray that she will be comforted.
