VLV Because of You


It's Friday, and that means a brand new Viva la Verve Sketch!  This week's sketch is brought to us by sweet Maureen!  I decided to use the Just For You set from Verve.  I paired it up with papers from the Finally Fall Collection from Bella Blvd. 

I created this card in memory of my dad.  Our family has had an extremely rough past week.  One week ago yesterday, my dad very unexpectedly passed away.  It's very hard for me to type this even now because it still feels like a bad dream that I'm going to wake up from.  I was VERY close to my dad.  I just can't imagine my life without him.  He was such a wonderful person. . .he was always there.  Anything anyone needed, he was always there.  He was content to be in the background and never needed to be the center of attention, but he was always there when you needed him.  I love you and miss you SO MUCH, Dad.  As this card says, I am who I am today because of you!  And I hope that others see a little bit of you in me. . .the wonderful person you were, the person that was always there for everyone else.  Thank you, Dad, for being such a blessing in my life.  I'll love you always and I'll miss you forever and ever!

Dear Charmaine...I am so sorry. I know how it feels, because I lost my dear Dad 3 years ago, and now my Mom last January. It's something you can never fully prepare for. Please know I am thinking of you and praying for you & your family. Your precious Dad is in the best place imaginable. And you will see one another again. Hugs to you...

I am so sorry. I lost my dad when I was 32 and even though it doesn't hurt anymore, there is so much I would love to share with him if I could just have him for one more day. We were very close as well. Time will soften the hurt but the hole will always be there.

Charmaine,

Like the others, I am so sorry for yoru loss. My dad died unexpectedly when I was a child -- and the one thing that always brings comfort to me is feeling like I have my very own angel watching over me and my family.

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Anne
