Sympathy card

My husband and I grew up in very small towns about five miles apart. We did not know each other, but have many mutual friends. One of these friend had a daughter die last week as a result of cancer. I made this sympathy card to send to her.
We have kept up with this family via Caring Bridge and have been praying for them all along. The lives this young lady touched is remarkable as well as her faith in God. Please lift up this family in your prayers today.

This is lovely! Unfortunately I have had to make a few sympathy cards in the last few weeks too....sometimes when it rains, it pours....

Lovely card. I find that there are very few words that seem appropriate for such an occasion. I found the following saying someplace and have used it on my sympathy cards ever since.
'May God’s love heal your sorrow
And may His peace replace your
Heartache with warm and loving memories.'

Your card really is lovely and the colors so appropriate for a sympathy card.
