I tell you this because it brings me to the card I made for my friend and her husband. It was a flat card. It simply had two red roses at the bottom and the words "With Sincere Sympathy" above the roses. On the back I was able to add my sentiment. They know I cared enough for them to make the card. It helped me realize that I need to make up a few sympathy cards for those unexpected moments. I pray that my friend and all of her family continue to see death as a part of life and that their sadness is overcome by the joy of the grandchild they are about to receive!

This is a sad start for my readers, but not really if you think about it. My best friend lost her mother-in-law Monday night. Flossie was 90, she had 14 children and lots of grandchildren and even two great-grandchildren. She lived a full life until the last 7 or 8 years when her age and a bad burn in a fire took most of her health. Now she's with our Lord and suffers no more - something to be happy about.
