A simple Sympathy


My mother (age 78) is 1 of 12 children and she is next to the youngest. Needless to say, over the years I have lost a few of my aunts and uncles but there was still 6 of the 12 left until this past weekend. My uncle Boob (Wilbur) passed away on Saturday at the age of 93! Can you believe it, he was still handing out food to (as he put it) the old people for Meals-on-Wheels until just recently. I wanted to make a special card for my aunt ... she is going to miss him terribly ... they have been married "forever" and I sure the empty house is going to be very difficult for her.


I recently received my new rubber for my work with The Rubber Cafe design team, and thought the large lace heart would work perfectly to hold this beautiful irish saying ... and it did! I hope it will bring her a little comfort!
Thanks for stopping by ... have a great day!!
