Wonderful Memory

We had to say goodbye to our cat of 8 years, Coco. It came as a quick shock and both of my young kids have struggled with losing their beloved friend as this is their first introduction to death and grief. So I found some sweet images and put together a couple of cards for them to help ease their pain. This one I coloured up for my young son using this image from A Day For Daisies 'Fairy Kitty'.

  13. Sorry for your loss. The death of a first pet is always the hardest, but you're surely making it easier for your kids to cope by remembering it with a card (something tangible they can hold on to). The cat image you've used is so sweet. Thanks for joining us at Simply Create Too. Janelle (DT) XXX
