We learned early this week that one of our neighbors tragically lost their son. My daughter is friends with the older brother in the family so this hit pretty close to home for all of us. The boy who died was about the same age as my son. My heart broke.
They are a very private family and I haven’t wanted to intrude. My lovely girl has been spending time with her friend, just hanging out. She even voluntarily went running with him! My girl Does.Not.Run. But she is a good friend and I love her for that.
So it’s taken me til today to be able to actually make them a card. A personal card. May I never have to make another card like this again. May they somehow find comfort.
The bottom half of the card has a personal message from our family to theirs. I didn’t want to share that.
