I posted this to my main blog at www.purplestars.com, but wanted to also post this to my Lockergnome blog to let everyone know what I’ve been dealing with since last year.
“About this time today I was heading down to visit my parents for Father’s day. We had a great day until it turned tragic that evening. As some may remember from last year about what happen to my parents and I on Sat. June 16, 2008. of last year. On the eve of fathers day my parents and I were in a tragic accident that could have been prevented if the driver, who hit us had not been drinking.
My parents were killed instantly, but I survived with minor cut and bruises. Unfortunately, I also had to have surgery earlier this year to remove the blood like clots that had formed from all the bruises I had. The trial for the guy who hit us was over this week too, which the jury found him guilty on all charges, which is good that the system worked for me, but still does not bring my parents back. All and all, it’s been a life changing, bad time for me since last year. I hope now that I can continue to move forward with my life and put all the negative things that has happen behind me.”

I am so sorry to hear that! I am glad to see that you are OK and that you’ve been able to move on. I myself also experienced a life altering death 7 months ago and I am glad to see others like myself being able to pick up the pieces and move on.
Sounds a lot like what happened to my parents… 🙁 Your situation, however, turned out to be FAR more tragic.
That’s one auspicious anniversary.
Otoh, it’s also a pretty good anniversary in that you have survived it and gotten stronger.
My hat is off to you. I wish you strength and peace in your healing journey.
I am sorry for you lose. I hope that you have started to heal both physically and emotionally.
Im sorry for what you had to go through – losing family members is never easy. I am pleased to hear that everything went well with the trial.
Thanks for sharing your story with us,
