In reply to: Paul 's message, "Happy birthday" on 15:13:19 05/15/06 Mon
Paul, I just celebrated my birthday with my partner and parents. We ate at a restaurant that has been the center of many family celebrations in past years. I realized as we were eating that the last time we were in that particular room was 6 days after my brother died, Christmas day 1998. Instantly, I understood the waves of sadness that were engulfing me.
Wow, obviously places as well as dates can trigger grief, even when we least expect it. Like you, for the most part my life has been back to normal. But each year, I think there goes another year without my siblings in my life. It is hard not to miss them and especially during milestones in our lives.

my baby brither died a little over two months before his birthday. The day was horrible ,but i waded thru it. I took my mom and my kids and we went to eat at one of his favorite reteraunts and watched the movie" Open Season" which had this beautiful message about letting someone you love go. My brother loved penguins and so X-mas we will go see the new penguin movie coming out. We have decided to try to honor him by doing things he would have loved to do. My kids also all had birthdays around the time he died. I got presents for them from him. They miss him terribly too. I hope you can find ways to honor your brother on his and your childrens birthday. PEACE
