The message of this elegantly crafted scroll will read:
I wanted to write something special to make you feel better and somehow ease the pain of crossing another threshold of life. I am thinking of you with the warmest of wishes.
I know that this is very difficult and want you to know that you have my heartfelt understanding.
Having been there myself, it is interesting that time and resolve are the only real healers, however the warmth of friendship does help buffer the ache of a blow such as this.
It may be hard to find solace right now, but please know my thoughts and my best wishes are with you today and always.
