Sympathy Card

This is one of those very hard to make card which I made for a friend but then couldn't send it, why I do this I'll never know, it is just something that I find difficult to deal with, especially when I know the person well, they know that I do this and fully understand and sometimes a hug works better than a card.

Its a beautiful card and I fully understand you not being able to send it. Opening sympathy cards is really hard and you`re right, a hug works just as well

I totally understand where you are coming from Jak. A hug certainly works just as well but I found that through time I was able to re-read the sympathy cards I received when my parents died and took comfort from them. This is a truly beautiful card and one I would have been honoured to receive. lol xx

A really beautiful card Jak, I totally agree with everything Anne above said. I too can now read the cards I received when my parents died, something which was very hard to do at the time.

it is a beautiful card and i echo what others have said, at the time they are hard to open but they give comfort later on when the person re reads them

Such a beautiful card filled with loving thoughts and tender care. I know at the moment your friend may not be able to view the cards she receives but later on they are a source of comfort. My daughter found that when her fiance died - there were so many cards sent. I kept them for her but later she was able to bear to look at them and I know how much they meant to her.

Lovely card Jak but I bet your friend would have appreciated the hug and you being there for her rather than the card.

Sue said...

Quite agree with everything that has been said here Jak, it is ia very difficult thing to do. Doesn't take away from the fact that is is a lovely card.
Hugs say much more though don't they!

just a simple thinking of you at this sad time... or you are in my thoughts..... plus a hug... When my dad died, i cherished the cards people had sent me... although hard to read at the time, I kept them safe and read them later, I still have them... they meant a lot to me. xx beautiful card.

I'm the same Jak. My friends all know that I'll do any type of cards for them....except sympathy...I get too involved with it and make myself ill.
It's a wonderful card though.

It's a beautiful card Jak. I know what you mean about it being difficult to make. May be you could give it to your friend in an envelope and it would be up to her if she opened it or not. She may then keep it until she is ready to open ot, or not if she didn't ever want to.
