A little tribute....

I had decided to try a one layer card...never made one before.  I used this bg dp=out of print and stamped with this "moon garden" Stampotique" stamp.


 This past June my dd and I took a quick trip out to New Mexico to visit with my sister and her husband....A guy who had his share of grief and knocks in life....but a VERY nice guy with a VERY big heart.....He died this afternoon...age 49 ...leaving my baby sister a widow at age 47....what can I say...my heart is aching...
As I post this card I wonder if he is "up there" watching us all...did he get to meet my mom??...who came to get him??...will my sister ever recover??...thanks for letting me indulge in this post....

Vint...love you and miss you .... you are wearing that stupid hat...you were soooo loved in spite of everything you went thru....A talented artist ,
a husband that loved his wife, A lover of animals and gardening....God Bless...your misery is over now...

It is so sad when we loose someone we love and at a young age. Time will calm your heart but it does take time. Be happy in the thought that now Vint knows all the secrets and be happy for him. Your card is wonderful and it reminds me of the sentiment. Maybe they are not stars but the love of loved ones shining down on us. Or something like that. It is my favorite. I should remember but 58 yr old brain has too much clutter. LOL
Hugs to you and your family,
Linda

My heart goes out to you and your sister, especially. My sister will soon be dealing with the same thing with her terminally ill long-term boyfriend. So sad.
