April 24, a date to remember, it was my husband’s birthday. A day that celebrated his life. Now it is a reminder that I am a “widow” In May it will be a year since he passed away. His last birthday was one he so bravely wanted to celebrate. His courage and determination saw him make that date and live to say he had achieved his goal. He had his 70th. at home we toasted his achievements and his life, knowing there would be no more.
Over his years of being successful at his chosen vocation – broadcasting, and the written media, he thrived at being a reporter of his many journeys and many observations as he travelled the world in search of stories, and new experiences. He never tired of sharing with others his enjoyment of the many interests he had acquired through his travels and his career. History, geography, world affairs he could converse and debate at large.

Things that happen to us all have a meaning.
Everything that happens to us happens for a reason. Each and every occurrence is a chance for you to improve yourself.
We married late in life, he was determined that his wife would be alright when and if he was not around. That meant, he wanted me to have and maintain an independence that would serve me in good stead should he not be around. He was so kind, considerate and caring, that I can say in all sincerity, he completed my life in a way that was so loving and dedicated to our togetherness that even though physically he is not here, he will always be MY husband, MY one and only … You were and are a blessing Brian, you are celebrated every day. R.I.P.
