Homemade Memorial Card, Anonymous Young Girl

Homemade Memorial Card, Anonymous Young Girl

It's hard for mrwaterslide to say that one memorial card is sadder, or more affecting than another. Such weighing of grief seems tacky, at best. Should we make a list of the "Top Ten All-Time Most Tear-Inducing Memorial Cards"?
Yet, however, nevertheless, this particular card strikes me as profoundly moving. The photo, as you perhaps can discern, has a glass covering, and there is a little wire frame and stand attached, so that the photograph can be set out on a table top or mantelpiece. And, of course, there are the flowers, painted on the glass. The flowers mimic the look of other memorial cards, those produced in photographer's studios, but here, they are handcrafted. Lost in the mist of time is the maker, but one can imagine---a mother, sitting at a kitchen table or by a window in a parlor, each brushstroke applied a strand in the fabric of grief, or a grandmother, or a more distant relative or family friend, perhaps, someone with an amateur talent making a keepsake for a distraught friend or neighbor.
Without fail, the solace of memory brings the ache of memory. Without fail.
