As most of you know, Arthur died just 5 days before Wolfgang’s birthday last year. Needless to say, it sucked. My heart aches for him. I want so much to make it so that every birthday for the rest of his life is not just an after thought, taking second to his loss. The problem is, I have no idea how to do this. I’m not sure if it is even possible. Wolfgang had never had a birthday without Arthur. He never did anything without his big brother right by his side. I am so proud of how well Wolfie has dealt with the loss. Much better than me for sure. He has been thrust into adulthood at way to young of an age. The biggest problem for me personally is looking past the reminder ever year. I don’t want my greif to cloud his day every year. This being the first year, I will try to remember how happy Arthur is and that he is still with us. He will be right here by Wolfie’s side when he blows out the candles on his cake.
