Rest in Peace,
PostCard delivered to my house - Nearly 100 YEARS after it was mailed in 1914 - What a COOL surprise!

I received a super cool treat in my mailbox today. The absolute best mail that I have ever received.
A post card dated March 25, 1914 was addressed to my house and delivered today, Jun 12, 2013.
Nearly 100 years after the post card was mailed it was finally delivered - TO ME!
The post card has the original old one cent postage stamp that was unfortunately mostly covered up with a current 33 cent postage stamp:
The post card has two dates- the original stamped date of March 25, 1914 and June 7, 2013
The card was addressed to Mrs. A. La Mont and was sent by Lenka Clayton, c/o MOCA 11400 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44106
Written on the card , " Dear Aunt, I hope you will have a pleasant birthday, more so than me. Ma is very sick with pneumonia. Her temperature was 102 1/2 last night, her pulse 6 beats better than the night before. Come out when you can. With Love, Ladie."
Better late than never.
I hope the postal carrier delivers more treats like this to my house. Thank you, USPS!!
