Sorrow

Have I mentioned lately just how much I think cancer sucks? Well, just in case I haven't said it enough, it really, seriously bites. This past Thursday, cancer claimed another one of my friends and I am horribly sad for his wife, who is a dear friend, and their son, who are left behind.

I made this card last night as my Creative Inspirations Paint DT assignment, using the colours for the Play Date Cafe's Challenge #96 (cream, mint & coral). It was not an easy card for me to make. Ashley and Lee helped me, via Facebook and Skype, because I just could not get it together. The card hurt to make. I don't want him to be gone. My heart breaks for this family.I'm also pissed off, because he was too young (52) and he was a truly good guy. He fought like hell, and it isn't fair and I hate it and I wish I could be in California on Saturday to attend the memorial service. I hope my friend and her son know that I will be there in spirit.
