Default Absolute horrible week followed by a nice Mailday

Well this past week started off real terrible with the passing of my father. Great father, great brother, great grandfather.. I will miss him a ton..

I returned home from Indiana with these waiting for me. Totally forgot about these coming in..

1/1 plate, /6 jumbo, and red ref /5

obviously the passing of my father overshadows the joy I get from these cards but it was nice to escape reality a bit when opening these packages up.

Sorry for the loss of your father man.

My mom passed 12 years ago this coming Friday and it still hurts sometimes.

it aint easy.. We lost my mom two years ago and my grandfather earlier this year as well. It's been very tough especially since I am so far from home.

I'm sorry for your loss. Although it's somewhat interesting how a man in a Mets uniform was able to distract people (or in this case a person) from sadness for a little moment again.
