PARADISE, Calif. - A man who lost his home, and everything he owned to the Camp Fire says he found something very important this weekend.
Ken Brow considers this a sign.
He says Sunday, he was digging through the rubble of his home when he found two Apollo 11 Commemorative $5 coins.
Brow inherited the coins from his father, who used to own “Brow's Wholesale Nursery” in Paradise.
He says “I miss him, and I’m hearing everyone say they want to rebuild.
And here I got dad and he's sending down a message and it just happened to be on the anniversary.”
On July 20, 1969, astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first person to walk on the moon.
Brow said he wanted to share this story of hope.
He felt like his father was telling him to stay strong and to rebuild, and he wanted everyone else to share in that message as well.
