It's tough to lose a loved one.

This forum is a huge part of my social life. So I'm going to post this. It may get closed I don't know. I know it's off topic. You guys can relate to me being in the coin world. This place has become part of my heart.
My brother died suddenly Saturday.
He was 52 years old.
Here's a coin to make this thread official.

    My condolences to you and your brother's family ... was he a collector as well or are you the lone wolf of the family interested in collecting

    He wasn't a collector unfortunately.
    He was fighting his demons and lost to them. So sad.

    So sorry to hear of your loss @Morgan13. I always wonder what God is thinking sometimes when he has the scum of the earth to pick from. Maybe HE only wants the best of the best with HIM standing by HIS side.
