This is not a could have been story! 2 years Strong!

Hi CaringBridge Family!

As I woke up today, January 18th 2016, I couldn't help but think how different my life was 2 years ago. 2 years ago at this time I was in complete shock that my older brother had the possibility of not being in my life. My mom and I sometimes ask each other what would we have done without Brian? Would we have been able to go on without him? Would we have been able to ever be happy? We are so blessed that we don't' have to ask those questions and that we don't have to search out those answers.

Today I don't have to think what if Brian was not here or what would Brian's life have been if he had survived the crash in a different way. For now I can just say .....Brian is here and he is still the light of our family. We know that when we all get together around the holidays or for someone's birthday that Brian is going to make us laugh and he is going to tell us about every movie we should see (Since he is quite the movie buff). I know he is always going to call me at work to see how I am doing and ask me if I am ready to move home so I can see him more often. We know that he is going to ask about our family dog Georgina and say how much he loves playing with her. We all know that today Brian will be here and we don't have to talk about him in a cloud of sadness but rather in a sea of happiness.

My family wants Brian to know that we love him and that he has been so strong over the past 2 years. We can't wait to spend another year with him growing, learning and overcoming obstacles every single day!

We are all in it together Brian, and you are leading the charge!

Love your supporters and Admirers!

I was just thinking of Bran and family a few days ago, remembering it was around the accident time.
Brian is so blessed to be so recovered.... I was so worried he would be severely brain injured like my step-brother who was in a terrible car accident.
Thank you God for saving Brian and helping him with his difficulties!
Please stay with Brian and his family.
