Our very good friend and neighbour passed away earlier this week and there was a service from the family yesterday. It was wonderful to see photos of Roy and his many adventures he had in his life. My kids (especially Emma and Mark) were very close to Roy and did so many fun activities with him like building bird houses, feeding chipmunks and swimming. Roy was so unique....he built us "Roy the Tree Man" (for my local ladies, that's the creepy dude outside my front window:) and he has a staircase leading up to a tree with a rope swing coming down. He was just such a sweet and generous man. We will miss him so much but the time we did have together will be cherished.
Roy was an animal LOVER.....this is by no means an understatement. Last summer, he found a wounded blue jay and so he built a 6x8x8 foot aviary to try and help the bird heal. When this didn't work he took the bird to Salthaven Wildlife Rehabilitation. He and his wife Eleanor were wowed by the services and talent that were at this centre. CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS
At Roy's memorial service, his family was asking for donations to be made to Salthaven Wildlife Rehabilitation. We made this donation, but Emma and Mark wanted to do more. So, we came home and made cards to sell with all proceeds going to this wonderful cause. This was a wonderful way for Emma, Mark and Nathan to give back. Mark and Nathan were in charge of all the punching (and there was a lot of it). Emma helped with the cutting and stamping and I put the details together. It truly was a team effort! We were able to complete 24 cards (and can make more if there's a desire:) So, we are selling these cards for $3 or 4 for $10.
If you're interested in purchasing any of these cards, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you so much for stopping by today and everyday! See you again soon:)
