Sympathy Card

Some times things happen and we lose people in our families, this recently happened to us with the loss of our oldest nephew, Tom. For our 20th Wedding Anniversary, we drove to Odessa, Texas to my husband's brother's house, the next day we attended Tom's memorial service the following day was just relaxing, some shopping for the girls while the guys took all the kiddos bowling, yesterday we drove home.  I didn't have time before heading down to Texas to make a card for my sister-in-law but after we got unpacked I sat at my desk last night remembering the pictures of Tom and knowing his love for green and Shamrocks. One of the things said during his service was about being lucky and finding a four-leaf so trying to bring the positive back in, I created this card.
