 This page is dedicated to John Eric Cranston.

Born July 4, 1944  Died May 8, 1994
 

This was something my brother-in-law, John Cranston, wanted to do before he died. He battled lymphoma for several years and found the greeting card industry lacking in one area. Get Well cards didn't provide a message appropriate to the condition of his health or anyone else facing a terminal illness or long recovery following a severe injury. His desire was to produce a line of greeting cards for people with a serious or terminal illness or people facing the potential loss of a friend or loved one. He called them Compassion Cards.
