Valentine for Joe

(I am not sure why this seems so out of focus - sorry about that!).  I will be sending this to an older member of our congregation - we do not know him well, but I do not think he has much family.  He is very hard of hearing, and has signs of beginning dementia.  Joe is on the list to visit (visitation team) and I thought he might enjoy a Valentine - but I wanted to avoid frilly or cute.  This is a verse from Word Art (thank you for your great selection of freebies.)  that mentions heart and love - appropriate for a Valentine.  The striped cs is from AMuse; the embossing is a LifeStyle Crafts folder and the hearts are from a Cuttlebug die that was one of my first acquisitions many years ago.
