    I am so sorry for your loss. With it, I am sure, come memories of times past; may they provide you with solace and comfort over the years to come.

    My sincere condolences for your loss @Ocatarinetabellatchitchix.

    May this quote from Elisabeth Kuebler-Ross give you much comfort in these days: "Those who learned to know death, rather than to fear and fight it, become our teachers about life. It's only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth -- and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up, we will then begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had.”

    I'm so sorry to hear about the passing of your father, @Ocatarinetabellatchitchix.

    I am so sorry - that is too young!
    Please stay positive ....as you always seem to be..


    Here is a coin featuring Moneta - most probably meaning Juno/Moneta but perhaps inspired by Moneta/Mnemosyne - the Greek goddess of memory... in any case - here is to the memory of your father. Long may it be honored..

    Ocat, I am very sorry to hear about your father 73 is much too young.

    I would like to honor your father with my best CONSECRATIO coins of Claudius II.

    Claudius II AE Ant RIC 261.JPG
    This one has a very nice barbarian mustache. Unfortunately, I sold this for $9 or something, a travesty in my opinion.

    Claudius II Milan RIC 261 (2020_11_18 03_38_31 UTC).JPG
    This is the first Consecratio I obtained. A strong black patina is pretty nice.

    Claudius II RIC Milan 261.JPG
    This is an unusual example of a rather fully silvered altar coin.

    Claudius II RIC 266.JPG
    This is probably my most impressive piece, I think worthy of your father. It's tough to find Consecration eagles in this state of preservation, and I hope he'd be proud to see this.

    And just for fun, my smallest (14mm) and ugliest Barb altar!

    I have no coins to show, but do offer my deepest sympathies.

    My mum passed away 6 months ago, so have a sense of what you are going through.

    It's not easy, but time does heal.

    Yes grief is difficult and personal. When I lost my father .. for months I would notice any old man out of the corner of my eye that walked like him, had a similar gait or had mannerisms like him and think I was seeing him for a half second and then realize it wasn't. This passed after some time - and I was good for a bit but then feelings would come in waves. Like waves hitting a beach and then receding. These also come less frequently.. Time is the only healer.

    So sorry to hear of your dad's passing. I can certainly feel the pain you are going through.
    My dad also left us too young, at 72, also cancer. That was a long time ago....I still remember his last words to me - "you were a good son".

    Keep his memory alive, that is the best way to honour him.

    In his honour, two of my coins of Claudius.
