Welcome

Of all the funeral cards, that circulate out there, I wonder how many ever find their way back to the families of origin. A simple funeral card is the summation of a life lived.
Enjoy the discovery process.

What a sad, tragic thing to lose an infant.

His stone is truly beautiful though. I don't believe I have ever seen any quite like it since the color of the flower is different from the remaining stone. The sentiment on the stone is lovely too.

Lori,
I also play with Photoshop to enhance the photographs. The rose just called out from the stone, paint me "red."
Thank you for your comment. Appreciate your following Funeral Cards and Genealogy.
