Difficult Circumstances

  • Dad may not be with us anymore but I'm sure he would want us to celebrate your love for each other. Just know that we will always be here to celebrate this special day with you, mom. Happy anniversary! (For parents) 
  • You and nana had a love story that would put a shame to all the other love stories! If she were here, she would want us to remember the happy moments and the good times. We're here for you, grandpa. (For grandparents)
  • Someone once said, "don't be sad that it's over, be happy that it happened." I cannot imagine the pain of losing the love of your life, but I want you to know that I'll be here when you're ready to talk. I know it's your anniversary, so I wanted to send this handmade card and hope it helps you reminisce the good times.


  • When I said I want to grow old with you, I didn't realize that would mean I'd be forgetting our anniversary! I hope you know that a late greeting doesn't mean I love you less. If anything, my love for you has grown stronger and deeper these past 3 years. Happy anniversary, my love!
  • Happy anniversary to the most loving couple in the world... from your most forgetful daughter! Your love story inspires me in so many ways. I love you, mom and dad! (For parents)
  • You already know by now that I'm always late to everything. So I hope you forgive me for this late anniversary greeting! Happy anniversary to my better half! I want you to know that I'd spend forever and a day loving you.
