Hard to believe it’s been 6 years.

Even after 6 years, I still hear their 17 year old voices and see their identical twin faces. Life after tragedy doesn’t end unless you give up hope and give in to the darkness. A new friend suggested I check this out and I am thankful, even if it stirs emotions and memories from the past. Day by day, we go forward as a family and Clan, not stuck in the past, but definitely never forgetting their last day with us. You might want to grab a tissue, I did.

Wishing you all a wonderful evening  and weekend ahead.

George

    • On Valentines 2010, on our identical Twin’s & Mom’s birthday(and our wedding anniversary) , a drunk killed them on their first solo drive to the family birthday/anniversary party with a huge gathering of our Clan. They died instantly, thank goodness, but it took their Mother another year to the day to give in to the darkness and give up living, she died of a broken heart. Valentines isn’t my favorite or my Clan’s favorite day, but we are getting better day by day. Thankfully we’ve been blessed with Grands and my twin Nieces, who are my life’s purpose now. Sadly I lost my first wife and infant son to a drunk driver many years prior to meeting my 2nd wife. That’s one reason I came to social media after my Nieces were born, my Kids thought it’d help me reconnect with the world after withdrawing into myself. It worked, so here I am. Still not a real writer, sometimes I just get driven to put thoughts into postings. that and humore and war stories with a funny side. They all loved diamond rio and restless heart, especially this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjGtQcKDFCg

  1. Oh George, you have my heart and love. We do indeed make it through the darkness with the love of our clan and the hugs of friends. We’ve lost too much to drunk drivers.

    • I guess I thought I had posted the info once, but apparently I didn’t. TY so much for your love and support. My Clan and I are fighters and not quitters. We have bonded through all this tragedy and learned to appreciate every breath and not take anything or anyone for granted. We had to learn to live for every moment and know we would never be alone in our journey. That’s why we wanted to live closer to as many of our Clan as possible so there’d be always love and support nearby. It’s definitely a blessing, and those make it worth living every moment to the fullest and sharing as much happiness as possible. Wallowing would show dishonor to my loved ones, so not matter what health or life problems are around next corner, I’m going to live my life

      and
      try to keep up with all my Nieces and Grands as best I can. Most don’t understand age yet, they help keep me focused……………….Thank you again, Milady. It has gotten easier, thankfully more blessed days than sad ones. 👀 ♥ * ͜ * ♥ 👀 ᕙ(💓▿💓)ᕗ 👀 ♥ * ͜ * ♥ 👀
