Barb's card (PC75, Just Magnolia, Icopic, Magnolia Monday)

This is for my friend Barb who lost her husband yesterday. Greg had not been sick very long (it was an extremely rapid progression) but his illness was extremely rare and painful.  They did have time to say their good-byes and he is no longer in pain.  I thought this image and this background would be perfect...to me, it's hopeful and beautiful...Greg is somewhere beyond the road we can see but we know it is beautiful there!  

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful Monday.
