If only it would stop. In addition to Gordon Frost, the U.S. numismatic world lost two other familiar faces this week.

Some E-Sylum subscribers who specialize in paper may have known Marie Jones, wife of Harry Jones, paper money dealer from Cleveland. She passed away suddenly at their winter home in Stuart, Florida, on February 23d. Many people will remember her sitting at Harry's table at many shows. Those of us who knew her will miss her cheery disposition.
John and Nancy Wilson write:
We were notified Thursday by our good friend Mark Lighterman, who received notification from another person regarding the passing of Bill Snider. What a great loss for all of us. Bill was one of the best known collectors of wooden money that ever lived. He was President of the Dedicated Wooden Money Club and served them in some capacity for many years. His life evolved around wooden money and his many friends. He traveled from one coast to another to attend wooden money meetings or to a coin show that had tables promoting wooden money.
He was a mainstay at just about every American Numismatic Association convention that we can remember. Any larger show in the Midwest would also have Bill in attendance. He was always the first one to the wooden money meeting and the last one to leave. He always wore his shirt "I Collect Wooden Nickels." You could always find Bill at the Wooden Money table promoting the collecting of woods. He was friendly and cordial to everyone he met. His passing will leave a big void in the Wooden Money organizations he belonged to, especially the DWMC. This is a great shock to us and we will dearly miss our good friend Bill. Rest in peace Bill, as your memory will always be with us. Our sincere sympathies to his family.
