Off track and I know that I'm not the first and unfortunately won't be the last but last night my Mom succumbed to her two year battle with cancer. My Mom was 79 and was a clean living, God-fearing woman who did not deserve such a fate, but cancer doesn't care. My wife and I drove the two hours to the Hospice center she had been rushed to and spent the night sitting with her and holding her hand. After 37 hours without sleep we arrived home to find our mailbox stuffed with baseball cards. Some from members here and some from members of another online trading group I am a member of, none of which knew of my Mom's circumstances. I will be sorting cards for several weeks as I find time and will enjoy every minute of it. This hobby keeps me happy while the real world fights to bring me down.
