Purple Butterflies

My 6th grade daughter and I attended a memorial service for a beautiful little 6 year-old girl this past weekend, who lost her courageous battle with brain cancer.  My daughter is good friends with her 6th grade sister.  My heart goes out to their family, who have been amazing witnesses for the Lord through this whole experience.  I have been absolutely amazed at their strength and unwavering faith.

Ileana loved purple, and the memorial service was packed with those wearing purple in remembrance of her.  I wanted to make a purple sympathy card for her family.

  2. WOW, that’s a tough burden to bear…..I don’t know how people who don’t know the Lord survive a loss like this. Your card is beautiful and will certainly bring comfort to the family!!!

  4. Thank you for sharing this lovely card. My prayers for you and the family concerned. Here in NZ we are involved in an organisation called Camp Quality. We have 5 regions in our wee country and each one runs a residential camp each year for children living with cancer. The organisation was founded by Vera Entwistle , who is an American living in Australia. She had a young child who also lived with cancer and saw a need for a support group. Google Camp Quality and you may find it of interest.
