Thinking of You for Uncle Lew

My cousin called the other day to let me know that my uncle (Mom's only brother) had fallen and broke his hip. I have not seen him in several years as his daughters moved him away from this area to be closer to them. He is 92 now and lives in an assisted living home. I wanted to just let him know I was thinking and praying for a speedy recovery for him. He always loved fishing so I thought this little guy might give him a smile and maybe remind him of "the good ole days". He is my mothers only brother so the only blood uncle I had. (Dad had all sisters.) Uncle Lew has always had a special place in my heart. I really miss taking my mom to visit and then listening to them relive their childhood memories and talk about their parents. My sister and I used to just sit and listen and enjoy learning so much about their young years and the parents gramma and grampa were.

I really hate the plastic that the embellishments come on when the flash seems to catch them better than anything else about a card! lol The fly in the lower left corner is one my little nephew made for me to use on cards and layouts several years ago. He was just learning fly tying.
