Sympathy card

Recommended Posts

I just had a good friend of over 30 years, pass away suddenly a couple days ago. I didn't like the idea of a plain simple sympathy card. Not only that, but he's always liked birds, just not to the degree as some of us.

First I tried to think of a photo that would be appropriate for a sympathy card. Nothing seemed quite right. Then, I went online and read sympathy verses and quotes. I finally found one that really seemed appropriate and one I could find a photo to match. I knew I had photos of birds singing, but not in the rain. I decided to use this photo and make my own rain.

What do you all think?

I think that's just the right photo, XT. It seems perfect for the job. And condolences on the loss of your friend.

Thanks for the kind words, all. I first worked with this fella at a printshop, over 30 years ago. Since then, he has been my handy man, occasional fishing buddy and card partner. He will surely be missed.

We just never know when our number will come up. Live life to the fullest but love your fellow man and treat everyone with respect. Do not take anything or anyone for granted.

    • I shoot 2 steel all season long in an improved cyclinder choke . Satisfied with that. Have a buddy who shoots Black Cloud 3's with impressive results.
    • I stopped at Lowes yesterday and got restocked at 9.88 per 18.6 lb double pack. No limit indicated.  
    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
