For 18 years artist Steve Wilson and his wife Michelle White each day would write notes to each other and use their creative skills to decorate their cards.
“We’d write about everything from small talk about the kids and grandkids to this and that. Some of them were ‘I love you’ cards and some were goofy,” said Wilson. “It was not great philosophy or fine literature but an ongoing never-ending card.”
“We would see each other in passing and leave little notes for one another,” said White. “The cards recreate some of our favorite trips – driving through the Southwest, seeing the desert. It’s good to remember those times.”
The cards fill an Army footlocker in their Englewood home where a friend is sifting through them to publish the best in a book. Wilson, who was in the care of The Denver Hospice, would not live to see the book published.
