Sympathy leaves

This is my card for the Judd family (Cammie's friends) who lost their 13 months old daughter out of the blue. (If you'd like to send them a card too, more info a few posts below in the World Card Making Day entry.)
I took the pic in the sun, sorry about the shadows and weird colors!... :-s
I don't think I have ever made a sympathy card before, I don't think anyone is comfortable making or writing those kind of cards... I kept the design pretty minimalist but, when I thought about them, I knew I wanted to use that paper. I just LOVE that paper (from Target $ spot), and someone you love passing away makes me think of a leaf falling from a tree. I can't even imagine the pain this family must be into after losing their child. But I didn't want to make a very sad or dark card though, those months spent with their little one were happy ones even if they were too short. It just makes you want to hug your children extra tight and not let them go.

It's a beautiful card. I can't begin to imagine how hard it must be for the family. Losing a child at any age must be hard but 13months is so unfair. You think once you get to their first birthday that everything is going to be ok, you stop worrying about cot death and start relax a bit. My eyes are filling up with tears just writing this and yes it does make me want to hug my kids and never let them go. My heart goes out to your friends, it really does.
