Hallmark has always carried cards for such occasions. This new line, with cards made especially for these sensitive situations, might just be drawing your attention to it. By the way, I designed a lot of these cards. Not this one, my friend did. So I guess it's good for us that you find this "odd" enough to post on your blog.
