Something Special for Kathy Nycz's Family - blank thank you cards

Hi Everyone. I have been feeling pretty icky for the last day being on the road and too far away from NJ to be of any help to Kathy's family. Bouncing along in a truck sparked an idea: I want to send blank hand made Thank You cards for Frank and Kathy's family to mail since I'm sure there will be an outpouring of sentiments from everyone she touched. I don't want the Nycz family to have to send the plain ordinary Thank You cards. My guess is Kathy's kids do not make cards but we do!! We can make them bunches of elegant cards that Kathy will be happy to have sent in her honor. What do you all think?

Here's what I suggest:
  • Envelopes: Print little return address labels for the envelopes with Franks name and address.
  • Postage: if you want, include the postage on the envelope. One
    Less thing to purchase and thing they have to do.
  • Cards: keep the cards simple and elegant. Flat without too many embellishments will be easiest for them to mail.
  • Back of card: ????? Not sure About this. But I think we could say something like "lovingly handmade by Kathy's friends" I don't want this to be an advertisement for CP. but I want people to see how much Kathy meant to us. Please be the judge on this last suggestion.

The sets of these blank Thank You cards can straggle in, but i think it will be best if they get to Frank by the end of the week. someone else my have a better thought for what timing will be best.

Flowers didn't seem like enough...donation didn't seem like enough. But making lots of cards seemed to fit.

My heart still hurts, but i'm feeling a little brighter having a mission.

Hugs to you All.

Judi

Judi, I really like your idea. I have been thinking about this for the last few days.I was going to start a remembrance page for Kathy using all the cards from her over the years. I think I still think I will do that but I will also send out cards fro Frank and the family.

I just spoke to Frank and Jennifer. They both agreed that Kathy was the creative one and they would not be making cards. They would love to have handmade Thank You cards. I feel better!!

Thank you Judi! What a great idea. I feel better already. I just now told Greg at Marcos Paper and the tears started to flow again. Kathy would have been so surprised that we were doing this to help her family. Hugs, Julie
