Cards With Your Deepest Sympathies

While we hate to think about it, there are some cards you just might not want to make. Sympathy cards is what I'm talking about today. In the blink of an eye we realize how short life really is. We want to "be there" for our friend or loved one who is going through a tough time. If we create a handful of sympathy cards we will be ready when life throws a curve ball and we will be ready to help others in their time of need.
