Thank you cards for our sympathy letters and notes
What to do about all the sympathy cards and letters we received? I was in such a catatonic state but I started collecting them in a pile and eventually a large zip bag became their home. Did I need to write people back? Do you get a break from thank you notes when your child dies? What about all the emails through Facebook?
I googled the etiquette people.
No way out.
You must write everyone back.
I came up with a compromise.
I had a card printed up that would communicate the body of our feelings. And then I wrote something on each one.
It was a labor of love.
We had been overwhelmed with kindness.
Extremely grateful to work on this "project".
