Maggie emailed me with this message on Friday evening (the flowers were sent with love and sympathy from all of us in the Snippets Playground after the sudden and sad loss of her husband, Geoff ):
Thank you so much for those beautiful flowers which have just
arrived. It is such a comfort to know that so many people have
taken the time to show their support, and it is a comfort. I am
going to print out all the messages we have had and put them,
together with all the cards, in a special book that I can take out
and read when I need help.
Our two children have been fantastic, and so far, have not
let me be alone. They have come with me to all the arrangement
making appointments, reorganised my house so that I can reach
everything, and just been there. They have contacted everyone for
me, by phone, email, Facebook. Everyone has brought their children
for the light relief that only children can supply at times like
Please thank everyone for me and tell them how much their messages
have given me support.
This card is for Maggie and her family, and was also sent from all of us in the Snippets Playground:
- A6 white card stock
- Couture Creations 'Tied Together' embossing folder and pearls
- stamped sentiment by American Art Stamp, number GRS20.G, stamped using SU 'Perfect Plum' and die cut using Labels 8 Nestie
- SU 'Perfect Plum' card stock
- butterfly die cut using SU's 'Beautiful Wings' Embosslit, and a little strip of pearls added
I made this card with such a heavy heart, barely able to comprehend how Maggie must be feeling right now - I know we all feel so truly saddened.
Then I thought more about the sentiment and realised that Geoff already was a real treasure, during all the happy years he and Maggie had together - and, strangely enough, at that very moment the sun broke through the clouds here as if to say 'Too right'!
