Margo's Family - Thinking of You!!!

Morning!!  It is with a very heavy heart that I am posting this card, and I will not be entering this for any Challenges!!  I don't know if any of you saw a footnote that I put on one of my card postings last week?  We had a shock in our block of apartments.  One of our neighbours was found dead in her bed in the morning by our House Manager.  She went in with her pass key when her family and other residents couldn't get her via phone on by knocking on the door or via the Careline intercom.  It was very sad and so unexpected.  We had all seen her on the Monday morning for our usual coffee morning in the residents lounge.  It was only April that I posted her birthday card on here.  I have made this for her family.  I will not be able to go to the funeral as it is Friday next week and I will be still in the I.O.W.
