About a week ago a friend and junior Marine of mine died in a car accident, leaving behind his wife and 5yr old daughter. Then last night, 1/27, at 8pm I performed CPR on my mother, at 9pm she was pronounced dead. I have suffered many deaths in my life, many of them during my service in the Marines, but now I have lost someone I cherished above all others. Someone I loved more than my own life, the very woman who had a hand in raising me, died. So, I ask all of you, my cigar family, to pray if you believe in something for my family and if you do not believe, at least keep my family in your thoughts. I will be fine, I am a Marine to the bone, I will be the rock for my family. I thank all of you in advance for your well wishes in my darkest hour. Thank you all, my Brothers and Sisters of the Leaf.
