Letter to Brian: July 31, 2014

Dear Brian,

The most amazing thing happened yesterday.

I got a message from an old friend from high school who just happens to be renting a house you used to live in… and when she went to the mailbox she found an old change of address sticker in there. It was yours and it dates back to 2001!

To some people this might seem pretty trivial but I live for little reminders of you just like this… such a blessing! Well… that’s all I had to say today, just wanted you to know that it brought a tear to my eye and a smile to my face.


Love Always,

I lost my brother Brian, my only sibling, to suicide on October 13, 2010. I write about dealing with the loss as well as my own life-long struggle with depression and suicidal ideation.

  1. Thank you Laura for posting this. Even though we need no reminders of Brian’s life, physical evidence always helps remember, even an address label as much as a picture.
