I have sent a few sympathy cards recently, starting with my newly found distant cousin. She contacted me saying she thought we were related, and I eventually met her on one of my trips home. There was a message on Chris's Facebook page one day saying she had died. I was shocked! I later heard it was very sudden and unexpected, but she passed away peacefully in her sleep.
Then last weekend I found out again, through Facebook that my friend's brother David had died suddenly. It was a tragic death that has left his family heart broken.
I made this card for David from an idea I saw on Kristina Werner's blog. I will be seeing my friend tomorrow, we will cry some tears I am sure.
