Gone But Not Forgotten Card
An embossed leaf and teardrop is featured on the front of this card. The left inside includes the "Fallen Leaf" poem and the right inside includes the message, "With deepest sympathy".
on a sea of grief and pain,
the leaf cradles a teardrop.
Just as winter awakens to spring,
our deepest sorrow
harbors the seed of hope renewed.
- by Susan Ring
The meaning of the leaf and teardrop
leaf and teardrop image symbolizes the love and grief that families and
loved ones feel when someone dies. In grief, as in nature, there are
cycles and movement. As seasons change, so do feelings. There is winter
and spring, sadness and hope.
