In the memory of the lost ones!

Hello my friends,

Hope you are having a nice weekend! Today I would like to share with you a sympathy card. I think it is appropriate for the occasion. In the USA it is Memorial Day, here in the UK we just had a suicide bombing carried out at Manchester Arena in Manchester last week, ending in 23 dead and 116 injured people. But at the same time, my heart goes out to all the innocent people that have lost their lives all over the world and to all those people who died defending the freedom of their country and their families. So this card today is dedictated to the memory of the lost ones! Hope you like it!
