A memorial for Henry....

Dear friends,

I know I haven't been posting much lately and now that I am... it is with a card I wish I didn't have to make. Perhaps you have already read this somewhere but this week my fellow Pink Cat Studio DT member Sarah Anderson’s 3 year old son Henry passed away. Little Henry was unable to overcome a virus that made him ill last week. I am so sad for Sarah and her family, they have been in my thoughts ever since I was told about this terrible news.

Lorie Ames has organized a way to donate for a memorial for Henry. Henry loved his local zoo and visited it almost every day in the summer. As a memorial, trees will be planted there in his honor. Melissa at Pink Cat Studio has created a digital stamp to help raise funds for a tree for Henry. As you will probably understand it is the cute digi image I have used to create this card for Sarah and her family.

All proceeds from the sale of the digi stamp, minus Paypal costs, will go towards the tree. If you would like to donate towards the tree, please visit this webpage to purchase the digi stamp:

Another way to donate to the memorial is to print out this form and mail in your donation directly:

Please write on the form that the donation is for Sarah Anderson’s son Henry. Once all of the money is collected, a tree and location will be selected. If you have questions about the form please contact Lorie Ames. Lorie will be in contact with Sarah along this memorial journey to ensure that her wishes are followed.
To contact Lorie, please visit her blog at

If you don’t know Sarah and would like to learn more about her, please visit her blog:

Thank you for your help to raise money for a tree for Henry.
