Happy Monday.  Over the weekend I needed to make some cards for some very special people.  I had recently ordered the "Big Hugs" stamps and dies from Papertrey Ink and thought the sentiments in the set were perfect for my needs.

This first card was made for our wonderful Pastor, Father Jerry, who is being transitioned to a new parish as of July 1st.  This past Sunday was his last weekend with us.  He holds a special place in my family's heart.  He is the person who stood beside us when my husband was dieing from cancer and helped us through the funeral process and beyond.  My son also made his First Holy Communion with Father Jerry and has gotten to know him quite well over the years.  We will miss him very much and wish him the best as his flock changes once again.      
 This second card is being sent to my husband's cousin and family in California who just lost their son at 38 years of age after a short illness.  I am heartbroken for them.  Loss is so very difficult...even knowing that we will all be together again in Heaven someday.  I like to think that Stuart and him are together now looking down on us.
