Memories Last a Lifetime (FMS #20)

FMS Princess Badge

This post is dedicated to Mrs. Lydia Deocampo.  Her husband, Ed aka “Honeyboy” went to Heaven on Jan. 6, 2012.  She has been feeling sad and lonely without her husband of more than 50 years.  Her daughter Gemma said, “My Papa was her memory; couch potato & “iron chef” partner; breakfast, lunch, and dinner date; medicine reminder; bill payer & organizer; Christmas stuff decorator, idol & fan; dishwasher; shopping, prayer, and church companion; and, best of all, her best friend and partner for more than 50 years!”

FMS #20

When I read her post I knew I had to make Mrs. Deocampo a special card that would let her know that she is thought of by many of us in her time of sorrow.  I had the perfect stamp and FMS #20 was the perfect sketch.  This is why I love my hobby… it lets people know that they are in the thoughts and prayers of others.

I hope that this card brings her just a little bit of sunshine and a smile to her beautiful face because she is held up high in prayer for peace and comfort.  Her sweetheart’s MEMORIES will live in her heart for an eternity and those same MEMORIES will be carried on by their children.  I met him years ago and he welcomed me into his loving home offering me his friendship, as I was visiting their daughter, Gemma, who served in the Air Force with me.

for supplies to make this MEMORIES card.
