Sympathy Card

Entered this card into a housewarming party at:

Housewarming Party

I ran into our neighbor in Walmart the other day, yes up here in this part of the world this is how we usually see our neighbors.  For those of you who don't know we live remote from most of our town.  Our house sits on top of a 100 feet driveway on a 180 degree angle and we have one neighbor through the woods.  However, this neighbor that I made this card for moved a while back and now lives about 1 1/2 miles away instead of half a mile.  He proceeded to tell me that he lost his best friend last Tuesday, his dog.  This dog has  been his little buddy and went everywhere with him just like my little shadow.  A few years ago, not sure how many, his wife got sick and passed away.  BJ sat on her bedside while she was ill taking care of her.  Bob said he will never forget the love that BJ has shown him and will miss him riding shotgun.  Bob and BJ were among the first people that we met in our town when I was walking Skippy by one day and he always has time to chat with you for a couple of minutes.  Skippy and BJ got along great.  The hardest part for me is to tell Skippy that another friend of his has passed.  So far Skippy has lost about 5 or more friends. 

So here is the card that we will send to Bob:

And I'm adding this into the card.  I printed it out and laminated it.
