This was a tough one.  Making a card that no mother should ever have to receive.  It was with a heavy heart but genuine care that I put this together for a someone whose known me my entire life to give to one of her dearest friends; a fellow mom having to lay her son to rest.  What do you say in that situation, what words can be offered? This isn't the kind of card where "I'm sorry for your loss" or "Sincerest Sympathy" would cut it.  This needed a statement beyond condolences, something simple and heartfelt, something strong and meaningful.  I was pleased with the Close To My Heart stamp sets which provided the words she wanted to convey.
