A sad time

I never thought I would ever have to make a sympathy card for a child, but this week that's exactly what I had to do.  An 8 yr. old boy on my son's skate team lost his father to cancer one week ago.  His father, Harvey, was a wonderful man and he will be greatly missed by all the other children and parents.  I was given the job by the coaches to create a card for him.  Being the only other boy on the team, I figured that my son would be the closest to this little boy, so I asked him what he thought it should look like.  He wanted it to be as bright and happy as possible.  He also didn't want it to be too girly, so this is what we came up with.  The "little" people represent the children on the skate team and we had each of them sign it.  Our hope is that he will know how much we all care about him and ease the pain of losing his father at such a young age just a little bit.
