Abundant Blessings

My Mother-in-law, surprisingly passed away yesterday morning at an Assisted Living Facility.  My husband passed away 3 1/2 years ago and now his Mother passed away.  She was a very independent woman the reason that she wasn't able to live alone anymore was that her vision was so bad that she was blind.  She had attempted several eye surgeries which were not successful.  My sister in law received the call that she took her pills this am and when they went to check on her later they found her so it appeared that she had a major heart attack or stroke.  So I wanted to send some sympathy cards to my step-daughter and step-son that live far away and I'm sure will not be able to attend their Grandmother's funeral.  So when I made the cards from this wonderful set that I just got from Unity, I also made a birthday card.  I made the card according to a video that I saw at Unity.
