Thinking of You (Friends) Card

By Kathleen Hernandez


Some people or most people would say, “Friends make the world a better place to live in. . . .” We have close friends, best friends and mere acquaintances. All of them contribute to the world where we live and continue to exist. This handcrafted card was created or dedicated for long lost friends or friends who have been separated from us through time and by distance. May they find the path back to us. May we rekindle the long lost friendship we had with them. May their presence and warm friendship continue to shine upon us - bringing us added joy and wonderful memories.
