I wanted to post this on the 23rd when I found out this terrible news but wanted to ask BozenA first to see if it was okay to post. She gave me her blessing..
I write to you with a heavy, heavy heart that Bozena from ArtCardBox lost her brother today due to an extended illness. Even though Bozena and I have never actually met I feel a kinship with her. It is hard to write as my eyes well with tears for her and her family. Bozena's mom is also in my heart not even imagining the grief of losing a child.
So no sketch challenge, no color challenge, no theme challenge; just a card I sent to him some time ago saying stay strong (badź silny in Polish) and it seems he did not disappoint. Please pray for BozenA and her family as they grieve for Christopher.
Sending love and sympathy to my dear friend.. Rest in peace Christopher..
With much sorrow,
