Rest in Peace, John Glenn

Good Friday (12.9.16) morning.  On Thursday, 12.8.16, John Herschel Glenn, 95, died at the James Cancer Hospital in Columbus, OH.  “Rest in Peace, John Glenn”.

My condolences to his family.

You can read a lot of his story here:

Family life of John Glenn.  

He married his childhood sweetheart, Anna Margaret Castor, in 1943, and were married 70 years.  They had two children:  Carolyn and John David.

He was a Marine, Astronaut, and a U.S. Senator.

Some of his accomplishments:

First American to orbit the earth (2.20.62, took 4 hours and 55 minutes).  Famous phrase: “Zero G, and I feel fine.”

Set the transcontinental speed record as a test pilot.

Oldest person in space (second flight:  shuttle Discover, 1988).

Longest running Senator in Ohio’s history.  On his third attempt in 1974, he won. When he announced his upcoming retirement in 1997, he said, “There is still no cure for the common birthday.”

Last survivor of the original Mercury 7 astronauts.

Rest in peace, John Glenn.  I’m sure you left a multitude of memories for your family to remember!

Now, let’s take some time to do the same.  

Send a card to your grown children or to your grandchildren.  If you have an elderly mom, take a little time for her, too.

Friends also enjoy getting cards.  Here, I have lots of options for you to download, print and send out!  Let me help you make your mark in the lives of the people that matter the most to you.

Let’s move on to my own FREE offerings today.  Just right click and save to your own computer.  Put a copy of my card in the folders you build, and you’ll always know where you got the graphics.  And, of course, it’s there for you to SHARE! SHARE! SHARE!

Just right click and save to your computer.  All graphics are made by me!

Today’s graphics are: Top:  Rest in Peace, John Glenn; heart gift tag, 2 heart papers, seven fractal card fronts, and a coloring page.

I love the two “retired cards”.  One is a polite version; the other is a “telling it all” version.

Okay!  That’s it for today’s graphics.  Use them with some pre-made cards and envelopes, and your cards will just take a minute to get together.

Remember to grab my card!

I’d appreciate any and all comments.  Please take a moment to leave one below.  And thanks!
