WELL SUITED MEETS SIMPLY ELEGANT - FATHER'S DAY CARD IN HONOR OF MY DAD



As many of you know, my Dad passed away May 27th unexpectedly
of an accident while in Captiva, Florida.
My daughter and I had just returned from vacationing with my dad and his dear friend, Charlotte, Tuesday May 25th.
I made this Father's day Card in Honor of my Dad and all the Dad's who are in heaven watching over all of us.
My Dad loved all my cards I would send to him an kept everyone of them.
I will be traveling back down to Florida to close out his house and belongings.
His Service is also June 16, 2021 at the St James Episcopal Church, Ormond Beach.
Thank you all for the outpouring of cards, calls, Starbucks, coming by to see me, and just sending words of encouragement as I go through this overwhelming task of saying Goodbye to my Dad.
