So, a very good friend of ours sadly died last week. He wasn't so old and he didn't suffer, whichi is a blessing, and he was a priest. He was a true gentleman with a very dry sense of humour and one of the most genuine people I've ever known. There won't be a funeral as such; it's going to be a Service of Thanksgiving, with no black. A celebration of a wonderful person.
And I had to make a card for his wife. I really don't like making these cards. When Dad died, we got hundreds of them. I know they are to show that people care, but I couldn't look at them. And I've never sent one since, either. But I have made a couple.
But for this man, I didn't want to use lillies. So the idea was something cheerful and bright, just like he was. I made this very simple white and lilac card with just a touch of sparkle. His name is David Dicker and he will be very sadly missed. x
