Funeral expenses for Coz

On Sunday, January 14th, Coz passed away after a long battle with cancer.

From his sister Kira:

"Hello everyone. As you all know by now, Coz passed away peacefully yesterday. He was surrounded by a big group of dear friends and family. We played and sang him Manowar songs until he left for another realm. We miss him terribly, but he is in no more pain, and he will live in our hearts forever. He loved all of you, but you know that already. Thank you for the beautiful messages and tributes. It is so moving to hear just how many lives he touched. We will keep everyone updated about Memorial Services as soon as we can. Go play some metal for him. And maybe have a pina colada, those were a favorite of his. Much love. -Kira"

Coz had one main concern, and that is Martha, and how she would manage without his financial contribution. He was also very concerned about the financial burden his final expenses would place on his family. We are raising money to help Kira pay for a memorial service, and to help Martha with transitional living expenses.
