My daughters partner recently passed away, she is being so brave, but my question is that I want to write something in her Christmas card conveying her bravery and that we are always there and proud of her. Please any ideas, she has expressed that she wants to receive a Christmas card, but would like to put my own verse or message in. My uncle died on Christmas day I rarely get to see my cousin. I know that she will probably not have a very merry Christmas, but I feel that I need to acknowledge her since I always send her a card.
Should I send a card, if so, what type of card?

How do I respond to this card? So what should I do? Drake, My mother died in mid December, 2 years ago. Last day i was searching blog for New year then i searched this Best new year greetings. I was mainly talking to myself in the search bar. I found the card that was for Mom last year. Though I was on the phone w her constantly, days cane and went. The day we would have taken our drive to look at Christmas lights was somehow the hardest. I brushed it away because I thought I was being overly dramatic given our circumstances and surroundings.
I was able to bring her friend home. But Florence passed in March. My brother found mom on the floor in May. She fought so hard to regain her…everything… until a final infection took her on August 25, Thank you! Valentines Day is here. I would always make a fun time with my wife during this holiday including a homemade silly poem and card or some other expression of love. She passed in April This is the first year when I have done nothing.
Well, maybe I will send a poem to her old e-mail address that is still active. Or maybe, I will continue to do nothing. Sometimes it is painful to dwell on her passing for a long period of time, and I am pretty slow about putting together a poem. Maybe, I will do something on her birthday. To Steve who may never see this note. Valentines note, What a sweet relationship you had with your dear wife.
Even though there is such deep loss, you have never lost the loving gentle thoughts of sharing with her. Someone shared with me to write, then keep the note close to my heart.

I felt that even though my son did not want to take the picture he did for me, so I needed use it for the Christmas cards. On the back of the card I had a picture of him with a message of how we missed him and the dates. The following year we did not send any, but this year we did.
Since my daughters had big milestones this year, I felt that they deserved to have a card celebrating their big year, so I sent them. I picked a card that had plaid on it, since my son wore a lot of plaid, I still signed his name with the gold dove, and on the back I put a picture of my kids when they were little and a quote from Charles Dickson, God Bless Us, Everyone.
Irene, my son died in also.

Someone who saw me clearly as I was and who looked past my faults to the possibilities of goodness. Someone who believed in the person I could yet become, long after I had left his religion class behind. But I am old enough now to have lost most of the beloved adults in my family, and I know what a gift a few words of shared sadness can be.
When my mother died, I saved every card, every letter, every enclosure that came with every flower arrangement or potted plant. I printed out every email. I even copied all the Facebook messages into a Word document and printed that out, too. I was desperate to hold onto any shred of evidence that her life mattered, and to far more people than just my brother and sister and me. I needed to keep learning about her from others, now that she was no longer here to keep revealing herself in real time. I needed to be reminded that my own memories were not the only ones keeping her in the world.
On the very worst days in the months that followed her sudden death, I pulled out those reminders and read them again and again and again. The shock of grief made me lose track of all manner of kindnesses in those first impossible days. I completely forgot that five of my neighborhood friends had driven all the way to Birmingham for the funeral. I had hugged them, I had cried on their shoulders, and then I had forgotten they had come. Their notes of love and remembrance, when I pulled them out later, helped me remember again.
