April has always been a very solemn month for me for so many reasons. This is the time of year when we are reminded, and tend to reflect on our Savior, the grave sacrifice made. . . the sadness of death, yet the hope of resurrection and reunion of life. With recent tragedies that hit close to home for me, I am left both shocked and heartbroken. . . This April is also the 6-year anniversary of the death of my closest friend who passed away shortly after giving birth to her precious baby boy. . . I have made it a yearly tradition since to create a few sympathy cards during the month of April, just to have on hand for such sober occasions. Though words cannot heal such a loss, it can help bring solace and let them know you care, that you are thinking and praying for them, and that you will be there for them during life's difficult times.
