    On November 12th 2018, Stan Lee, co-creator of iconic comic book characters Iron Man, Hulk, Spider-Man, Captain America, the X-Men and Thor among others, died.  He was 95 years old.  When I heard about his passing, I wasn’t surprised, he wasn’t in great health, but I was saddened.  Not only do we share a love of comics, we shared a birthday, December 28th.  So, as a comic book fan and above all a Marvel comics fan, it was a sad day, but it brought back one of my favorite memories.
