Farewell to Lisa

Good evening this week I had to make 2 Sympathy Cards for my neighbours. Sadly after hard battle with Cancer Lisa went to a better place. Her father and mother live across the road from me and they live round the corner. Her husband knows my son well. 
So I spent the morning of her funeral making the cards and thinking what ashame and how cruel life can be. She leaves 2 teenage children and thoughts of my own Mum and sister who bothe left teenagers and younger.
Well not to dwell and depress you all here is my cards. I kept both simple and in similar styles.
This was for her husband and children I think the sentiment says it all on the front
