Butterflies are always touching for a sympathy card, Carol, and I'm sure your neighbor will appreciate the masculine colors and textures used on it. I'm sorry to hear of his loss, and hope that his hurt will be eased. I think that is the hardest part - those of us who are left behind miss the person so much. Thanks for sharing your beautiful "splatter" background, too. hugs, de

To loose his son to cancer is dreadful, poor man. I find sympathy cards so very difficult to make but there is something about butterflies which seem to say so much and this card is lovely Carol, I am sure your neighbour really appreciated it.
