Shakespeare buck condolence card
This beautiful card came in from a dear pen pal, condolences on my grandfather's death this summer. I link the post about his death here because the photo I used in it helped inspire this kind soul to choose this card, which is beyond perfect. You couldn't have chosen a more perfect card if you had known him.
The quotation by William Shakespeare reads:
His life was gentle, and the elements
So mixed in him that Nature might stand up
And say to all the world: "This was a man!"
It made me cry, but in a sweet, remembering sort of way.
