On November 15, 2009, my seemingly normal and all to boring life came to a screeching halt. My first born child and only son, Erik, died after sustaining fatal injuries in a freak four - wheeler accident. This blog is an open and honest encounter into my life without him.

Happy Birthday, April!
Today is my sister-in-law, April's 27th birthday.
April and me at my party Friday night
April has been a part of our family for a very long time! She started dating my brother back when they were in high school and has been in our family ever since. She has become much more than my brother's wife and I am so glad that I'm able to consider her one of my best friends. I can call her and vent about any and everything and she's always willing to listen.
Their wedding day - 12.01.07
Back when we both looked a little different! LOL
April has been through a lot this year. She found out back in March than a mole on her neck was melanoma. She had surgery to remove the mole and has been cancer free since.
She is going to start her Master's Program for Occupational Therapy at the end of this month and I am so proud of her. She has been working full time at her job, as well as busting her tail completing the work necessary to get accepted into the program. She's such an inspiration!
I know that my brother is spoiling her rotten - the iPad she got last night is proof of that!
