some of the useless bastards who murdered my brother are in jail and the rest are on heavy surety and braceleted.
His oldest son (My nephew Ryan, who was with his Dad when he was brutally murdered) is living with me and mine, which is a very good thing, because prior to that he was bouncing around from bed to bed and indulging in self destructive behaviour. He was in such a state that we had trouble reeling him in.We've convinced him to get trauma/grief counselling.
His wife (my sil) and the other three (young adult) kids are slowly trying to return to a normal existence. all of us are signed up for counselling. My brother's fam and mine have become super tight (we were all with him when he died and that right there creates an incredible bond and intimacy, so we are sustaining and holding each other up.) Court is still a long way off, but we are all steeling ourselves for that.
I know it all sounds dreadful, but it's all good stuff, when you consider that less than 2 months ago we were all reeling in horror and grief, and feeling like there was no way to move forward.
g has been absolutely wonderful, I honestly don't know what I would have done without him, he is a total rock and has been so helpful and giving to my bro's family. He is the best
My kids are thriving, Riley is a great kid, grade 11 and honours. Dylan is working long hours on his apprenticeship and returns to College next year to do that part.They couldn't be more of a joy to g and me.
Adult kids all fine and gkids thriving as well.
