Treasured Memories

This week my beloved grandfather passed away peacefully in his sleep at the grand age of 96. I know I'm feeling heartbroken so I can only assume how my grandmother is feeling at the passing of her husband of 67 years. As a way of processing my grief I created this card for her taking inspiration from the poppies as he is a return serviceman and the pumpkins for his love of gardening.
