Raise a glass...

Very hard day for me today. I paid my respects to someone I call my brother. Looking into his parents and daughters eyes today was one of the hardest things I've had to do. Craig had over 23 years in and was less then 2 years away from retiring. He battled many demons and in the end they got the best of him. So please raise a glass in Craig's honor and help me honor him.

    I’m sorry you’re experiencing this right now. I said a prayer for Craig and his family. I’ll say another, have a drink, and smoke a cigar in his name later tonight. Truly sorry for your loss

    My sympathy, Nick. It's hard losing a brother to the demons, been there. I hope you are not beating yourself up thinking you could have done something to ward them off because demons are very personal and there is little that anyone else can do. I don't drink anymore but will toast Craig with an non-alcoholic IPA and a cigar this evening.

    My condolences to the family and hoping you are coping well with the loss of a brother.

    Don't let the wife know what you spend on guns, ammo or cigars.

    Nick, those of us who have survived have a duty to do good honorable things that the brothers we lost cannot do now.

    Sorry to hear of your loss. Losing someone close always makes the world feel just a little bit smaller. I'll raise a glass tonight, if that helps any.
