In doing research after Days of the Dead, I came across Karen DeGrassie. I loved her posts on Facebook about the event. She showed so much enthusiasm, I had to ask her to share some of her stories here.
She decided to send the picture and story of Derek Mears.
My words cannot do justice to her enthusiasm. Here is Karen's story, as she tells it...
I love the pictures of me and Derek Mears. He was Amazing!!! When we try to explain to friends what he is like, we are at a loss...You would think playing a serial killer, he would not be The most Friendliest,Thankful Celebrity we have ever met. He was so busy thanking us when we were the ones very Grateful and he took the time to chat...not just here is your signature and photo.
The Days of the Dead Convention was Amazing!!! The help and the Vendors were Fantastic!!! Can't wait till next year.This was only my second horror convention but I am soooooo addicted!
This type of excitement is exactly why I love these conventions. Karen's story about meeting Mears is just one of her many. She has agreed to share more here in the future.
