    An apology

    Guys,
    Some of you may have noticed that I have not been as active on the board recently and I have even failed to reply to a few pms.
    We had another death in the family, this time my mother in law and not only has this affected me, but my wife has had to handle most of the details, with as much as support as possible. As you can imagine this has been a burden, but it does not excuse some of my behavior. This even affected my work, to the extent that I forgot to mark some of the knives I just finished and I put the wrong handle on one of the knives. Talk about a really bonehead move.
    I would like to say that I am sorry and that I will try to do better in the future.
    Thanks,
    Del

    Del,

    Accept my sympathy for the passing of your mother-in-law.

    No apology is necessary, and I think I speak for all of the forum members about this.

    I hope your life returns to normal soon.

    Rick

    I agree. Life is more important than this stuff. Knives can always wait, or be fixed later on.
    Hope you and the family pull through ok.

    Anybody who has been there knows how heavy this can weigh, please don't feel the need to add any extra guilt to the mix over a few trivial oversights among friends.
    Take care of your wife, and please accept my condolences.

    I give you my condolences also, through this tough and stressful time. Extra stress of a loved one's death is enough to cause these problems. With the added stress of taking care of arrangements is extremely tough. I say take care of what you need to and the rest can come later. It is even acceptable in business to take time off. Again my condolences.
