19 Ways to Send Sympathy & Healing Thoughts



As some of you know, my father recently passed away.  He was 87 years old and suffered a stroke in October.  He was hospitalized until he died and not able to enjoy the quality of life he felt so passionately about.  He is missed but I am comforted that he is at peace.  I received many handmade cards (including a few swaps mixed in) sharing thoughts and prayers (thank you) that I hope will inspire you when you need to make a card to cheer up a friend.
