9/11/2001 is a significant date in our national history. However 9/12/2013 is the most significant date in my family’s history. Two years ago today our daughter Brooke Erin Reasoner-Logan unexpectedly passed away. Our world dramatically changed forever.
Nothing can prepare anyone for such an event. Nobody can understand the effect of this kind of tragedy unless it happens to you. Then and only then can you relate to the pain that so many have experienced by losing a child, brother, sister or spouse.
Nobody wants to hear the doorbell ring in the middle of the night and open the door to two policemen bringing the news of a daughters death. That’s how it happened for us. I don’t wish that on anyone.
I don’t talk about this to get sympathy but rather to remind you that this happens to lots of people. If you know someone that has experienced the loss of a child there’s nothing you can say to relieve the pain. The best thing you can do is just be a friend. Stand with them and pray for them.
Brooke was a wonderful daughter, she was my baby girl. She was so talented and such a people person. She loved her family and loved doing things for ones she knew and loved. I thank God for her.
The tattoo is something I did to honor her. It’s very significant and meaningful.
I love you Brooke. Willies song is my truth now, You Are Always On My Mind. Two years ago today was my worst day. The day I see you again will be my best day. RIP Baby Girl. Daddy sure misses you.
