The other day my husband was going through a paper bag of his son’s various papers. I’ve mentioned before that this young man lost his battle with ALS in March of 2013. We had been his caregivers for about 2-1/2 years. He was a quite handsome dude but not really the huggy, touchy/feel-y type. Both Russ and I were surprised at all of the hand-stamped cards he had saved! Russ (hubby) was as touched as I was.
I became a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in 1996 and I know a few of these cards were from close to that date. That said…….check these out:
As you can maybe tell, Jeff (and his dad and brother) was very much into fishing. I can’t believe that none of the cards had a date inside. Nor was there a ‘hand-stamped by…’ stamp on the back. Live and learn. Lesson for you: always put a hand-stamped by image on the back of your lovingly hand-stamped cards. Then write your name and the date! Posterity will want to know that in later years.
