Happy birthday Bryan??

by Donna

Well, somehow I made it through Halloween, and Thanksgiving. Today is Bryan's birthday, HAPPY BIRTHDAY my love. Am I supposed to continue celebrating his birthday? It has always been such a special day. The first thing that I always did was wake him up with "good morning baby, happy birthday, I love you sooooo much" and the last thing I would do is to tell him happy birthday baby, I love you, goodnight sweetie I'll see you in the morning.

I will never be able to do this again, he is not here. So now what do I do? It's really cold today, but my girls and I are going to visit him at the cemetary today. Bryan please help me get through this day without you, it is so hard. We love and miss you so much.

The birthday is hard, it is one of the things that is so public, but as with most couples, so personal as well. I got through John's, I cannot tell you how, but I did.

One step, one breath, one very hard day.

come back and write tell us how you are, we will be thinking of you

I do not know what you are going through but my son does. He is in the navy and will be celebrating his 23rd birthday the day after Christmas but he will still be feeling the way you are feeling because he feels his world ended on September 13th.

While on deployment on the Harry S Truman, he received a phone call on the ship. The call was to inform him that on that morning they found his wife murdered in their apartment; it was three days after her birthday (Sept. 10th) and the day before their 3rd anniversary(Sept. 14th).

He is struggling every day. He can't imagine his life without her. I offered this to him, Life will never be the same but don't let her death take away all that was great about her. She would not want him to quit living and Bryan would not want you to give up either. I told him to use this to help other military people by telling Shana's story.

Don't let you daughters be without a mother too, they have lost enough. Celebrate Bryan's birthday, make it a remember Bryan day and involve your daughters so they can remember their father and all the good times they had with him.
