Default Another example of this amazing community

I finally made it back to Ohio and then after the snow storm to the mailbox. I ended my day opening three beautiful cards. I can't even begin to tell you how much SM and your friendship mean to me. The card of my father brought tears to my eyes and not from sadness, but from the cherished card I will always have to remind me of my father. How you captured his very essence is the words without ever have met him just blows my mind.

You guys are the best! Many thanks to all of you: Brenda, Kathy (Pipper's mom), Kim (Tyler and Trissie), Lydia, Maggie, Marie, Michelle, Pam, Pat (A team), Paula, Sandi, Sherry, Walter, Sue (Tyler), Sylvia

In case you can't read the card with the picture of my Dad:
Front of card
How he looked
How he spoke
How he laughed
How he lived
How he loved
Inside
Picture of Dad holding me
A father's love last than a lifetime
His life will be celebrated, and he will always be remembered. With caring thoughts in your time of loss

The other card was from North Central Maltese - thank you so much for donating to save our new furbabies in my father's name. I couldn't think of a better tribute.

We finally coordinated my family's vast family, and we will be doing a sea-memorial to tribute our father who loved the sea. On May 6th, we will be sailing with 30 members of family and friends to scatter his ashes where we scattered my mother's seven years ago.

Special thanks to my guardian angels who I think did all this organizing -Walter and Sherry. And I have a feeling Walter will have to work his magic and straighten out the photos!

Love you guys!

Mags,

We all know how hard it is to lose someone you have known your whole life.

I am glad the card arrived. Sherry is amazing social network (even fighting a virus and being a caretaker a husband fighting a virus); she, Marie, and Sue provided a lot of guidance. And all the people sho wrote to us wanting to do something for you.

We wanted you to know that we are here for you. You have done so much for the SpoiledMaltese community and have had several life changing events over the last year. I hope the bonsai provides moments of peace and possitive periods of reflection and calm for you.

That card is so beautiful. I was in on it but hadn't seen it. Walter - did you create it? Just so wonderful. Mags - we hope you will find some solace with knowing how very lucky you were to have your dad in your life so long and what a wonderful role model in your life. I know that you will all be trading stories about him when you spread his ashes.

I hadn't seen the card-it's so beautiful! Supporting you during such a difficult time was really important to me. You've been there for me and that is the true meaning of friendship-always being there for each other-no matter the distance or anything else

The card company provides an editable framework and suggested wording. So some of the wording is theirs, some design elements and words are mine.

Scattering his ashes at sea. What a great tribute.

I hadn't seen it either beforehand and it's just lovely, great job Walter. Mags I'm so glad its a comfort to you. I agree, there is something about the sea and it's a great tribute to your Dad to have the ceremony there.

I'm so glad you got your family all together for the burial at sea. I remember seeing pics of from your Mom's. Walter really did work his magic! The card turned out great! I know you will always miss him. Peace be with you.
