Sympathy card

It is always hard to make sympathy cards. It usually mean someone is severely ill or someone had passed. Either way, it's hard to make a card like that for someone.

I understand that I will never understand what my friends are going thru. But I desperately want them to know that I want to be there for them, hug them, hold their hands thru this difficult time.

Unfortunately, everything I can say or do comes out cliche' and hollow. But, I meant them sincerely. Just hope that in time they know that their friends love them, are here for them.

This will be the 2nd funeral I've ever been to in my life. I've been blessed that I didn't have many of those to attend. I did missed a few, one it was just too difficult to go, not only do I not know the person's family (just know her and her husband), but she was the kindest person in the craft world in Houston. I just can't bring myself there, as though, if I didn't go, it didn't really happen. Another one was a dance person, at one point he was a good friend, but towards the end, he pushed alot of his friends away, and I just didn't feel right going.

So, that brings us here... may he find the peace he needed, and be well taken care of in God's hands.
