I have been here before but not recently. My brother, Tim was murdered in Albany, New York and died on October 10, 2004. He was 28.
Like all of you, I am having a hard time dealing with not only the loss of Tim but the manner in which he was killed. He was brutally beaten by an individual with an axe. The person responsible for this crime did it because he wanted my brother's girlfriend back. He lived for four days on life support before his body gave out.
Enough about the background information - In June, a jury convicted the person responsible of 2nd degree intentional murder. On August 25th, he was sentenced to 25 years to life. If anyone is facing a similiar situation - which I think I read one story - the court room drama and the waiting just brings things back to the fore front and it is like you are grieveing again as if it just happened.
Tim's birthday is September 16th and it will be his first without him - I can't imagine this and then the one year anniversary of his death will be in October. If anyone out there has questions about the court process, please don't hesitate to contact me.
On a side note, through this amazing site, I have met Kristy. Kristy and I write everyday and it is amazing how we have so much in common. I couldn't get through everyday without her. Just knowing that someone else shares my grief is comforting. Even though I am in New York and she is in Florida, I feel like she lives next door and that I have known her a lifetime. I was telling her this morning that I believe it was fate and the work of her brother and my brother that brought us together. I am truly lucky to have met her. This is a friendship that will stand the test of time like all of us that have visited this site!
