Two Claudii :
Claudius I, dupondius of Lyons mint, rev. Ceres Augusta
Claudius II Gothicus.
"Claude II le Gothique, sa vie est un roman"
Here is a Claudius II Gothicus in your father’s honor.
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.”
A Claudius in honor of your father:
Æ As, Rome, late January 41 AD – January 10, 42 AD
24 x 26 mm, 9.506 g

TI CLAVDIUS (CAESAR) AVG PM TR P IMP bare head l. /(LIB)ERTAS AVGVST(A) Libertas, wearing long dress, standing facing, head r., holding pileus in extended r. hand; S C across field
Here is my brother's Claudius AE as with Minerva on the reverse in honour of your dad.
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..
I would like to honor your father with my best CONSECRATIO coins of Claudius II.
This one has a very nice barbarian mustache. Unfortunately, I sold this for $9 or something, a travesty in my opinion.
This is the first Consecratio I obtained. A strong black patina is pretty nice.
This is an unusual example of a rather fully silvered altar coin.
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!
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.
Nero Claudius Drusus, father of the emperor Claudius I. Sestertius.
Obv.: Nero Claudius Drusus Germanicus Imp(erator), head left.
Rev.: Ti. Claudius Caesar Aug(ustus) P(ontifex) M(aximus), Tr(ibuniciae) P(otestatis), Imp(erator), P(ater) P(atriae) / S(enatus) C(onsulto), the emperor Claudius I togate holding olive-branch, seated left on a curule chair placed over globe, around the chair, spears, shields, cuirass, helmet.
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.
Here are a few of my favourite Claudius portraits in honour of your father:
