Carole, you might remember we had corresponded this past month when my mother went into the hospital with a traumatic brain hemorrhage following a fall. Unfortunately, she didn’t survive the episode, and we buried her 5 days ago. Before her passing, my son and his wife came from Florida to see her in the hospital (she never regained consciousness to have a conversation). They have 2 children ages 9 and 6 who did not accompany them on the trip to see their grandmother. However, Lila, the 9-year-old granddaughter, did make her own sympathy card for her, and my son read it to her even though she was unconscious. The words were very touching. The card has been scanned, and I have attached a photo of the written page. I would like to include this photo in a memorial slideshow that I created and possibly a scrapbook page. Unfortunately, the card was written with a pencil, so the writing is quite light and faint. I would like to darken the words and even thicken the characters so that they are more clearly visible. However, I have no idea about how to approach this task. Do you think that you would be able to instruct me about how to do this? I think that such photo editing would be a nice topic for either a Q&A session or even a master class if you think that it would take too long for a Q&A session. I don’t mind sharing the card with an audience.
