I made this card for a dear friend in MA who is always a gracious host and offers me a place to stay whenever I travel to New England.  The Fall foliage is still bright and beautiful so I thought this "Wreath of Leaves" would make an appropriate thank you card.

My trip last week was for my Mom's funeral. It was not totally unexpected, but still a difficult part of life.  I was sad about her passing, but happy she is reunited with Our Lord, my Dad, my brother and all of the family and friends who have gone before her once again.
