Sympathy card

I work for a real estate attorney and one of the builders we have worked with for many years lost his Mother-in-Law the other night. She collapsed in a store a couple of weeks ago and they think that she had an aneurysm. Last week the doctors did a brain scan and said there was no brain activity, so the family decided to take her off of life support. Ron stayed at the hospital that night because he wanted to be there when she passed. Sometime in the middle of the night, she started talking and she recognized Ron and told him she loved him. He said it took him 30 minutes to figure out what he would say when he called his wife because at first he thought he was dreaming. She talked to her family and although she was weak and fuzzy minded, she recognized them all and told them she loved them. It seemed like a Christmas miracle and I'm still calling it that even though she passed away. The doctor's could not explain it, they even thought it a miracle that she could respond because the tests showed that there was no brain activity. I know that God works in mysterious ways and does things on his time. I think that she was able to talk to her family before she passed so they could have a little bit of peace. I am sad for them at their loss. Ron and Anita are such wonderful and sweet people. I know it's not much, but I made them this card.
