Parachute Flowers Comfort Card
Inside Text: May you find comfort and hope in every new day.
This card was co-designed by a U.S. Veteran and a designer. Together, the two collaborated to share a hero's story meant to inspire, motivate, & bless others.
Veteran: Bill Lanford, U.S. Army
Artist: Terrance Weinzierl
From his life as a paratrooper to his life as a military recruiter, Lanford's passion for working with others in a shared goal is evident throughout his life's journey.
Lanford's story spans the survival of the war in Vietnam to a well-earned retirement from operating flower shops with his wife. This contrast is depicted through the image of parachutes mimicking lotus flowers - simultaneously reminiscent of Bill's military time and the fruitful life that has followed.
