Tribute to My Son

Today is Larry's birthday, and I miss him lots! I lost my youngest boy almost 3 years ago, and finally....I am almost feeling alive and myself again...it takes a long, long time. He loved everything Asian, and he would love this card.... more....without the flower of course! This is the Alcohol Float technique from the latest TJNL. Very kewl technique! Stamp is Stampington. Anyway,.... I am sending you lotsa' love and big hugs Lar....Mama

I can't even begin to imagine your loss. {{{{HUGS}}}}

I just had family leave this morning so hopefully I can try out some of the new techniques before I leave on vacation on Wednesday. This technique looks gorgeous!

Hi Gerrie, read your tribute to your son, love the look of your card and pray that all the good and happy times of Larry's life bring comfort. A broken heart does take time to heal, but the Lord of all comfort is close to the broken hearted... I am praying for you, my TJ friend. Denise in New Zealand

Your card is just so lovely. The bg colors and style is just so pleasing to the eye.

I, too, lost a son 11 years ago and his birthday is always a sad day in some ways and yet I rejoice for the time we had together. Just remember all the good times. Sympathy and hugs to you.
