With Deepest Sympathy {and Jonathon's Confirmation}

Popping in really quickly this morning to share a card for the current CAS(E) this Sketch. Unfortunately, I have two more sympathy cards to send this week.  Several of my friends have lost family members over the last couple of weeks. Long battles with cancer where it is so hard to lose their family member yet their is gratitude for their family member being out of pain.

On a much happier note, Jonathon was confirmed last Wednesday night.  Uncle Tim was his sponsor and Nana/PopPop, Nana and Uncle Neal/Aunt Cindy were there to support him.  He is absolutely blooming before our eyes.  I love watching him grow up and see where his passions take him. He surprised us by being one of the few students who popped up to answer the bishop's questions during mass.  He's just started track this year and received the news this week that he moved up from the B team to the A team. The most important part is he's so happy!  Very proud of him!

You need to make some "just because" cards to cheer you up, but I'm sure they will appreciate the handmade greeting card.

I always love hearing about your boys, Lynn - Jonathon really has grown into such a handsome young man! (too fast for you, I'm sure.) I'm glad to hear he is doing so well! Love your gorgeous card! So difficult to see friends go through loss but I know they'll appreciate your kindness. Hugs to you! ♥
