Sympathy Card for Mary

Hello bloggers. 
If you are following my blog, then you know that Mondays are usually Heart 2 Heart challenge day.  The design team and I are all heartbroken, as our wonderful host Mary lost her infant granddaughter last week.  We have decided to take the week off in support of Mary, and to honor sweet baby Liberty.  If you would like to show Mary some support, you can leave her a comment on the H2H blog HERE.  I'm sure she will appreciate it.

Instead of a challenge card, I am posting the sympathy card that I am sending to Mary:

I have a tough time making sympathy cards when I need them, and making a card for the loss of a baby is especially difficult.  I found this poem, that expresses such a pretty sentiment, and it inspired my card.

As a butterfly graces our lives with one moment's fragile beauty, so too has your baby's presence blessed you, and those that surround you with her short life, and unique spirit. May you find peace, and joy with each butterfly that passes, knowing that your baby lives on in the hearts of all she touched.
Mary, please know that we are all thinking about you and praying for your family, and even though we never met Libby, she has touched all of our hearts.
