First of all, thank you everyone for your outpouring of love. I sincerely appreciate every single message and all of the encouragement to embrace the incredible memories I made with my darling husband. I know I am a lucky woman to have experienced this type of love in my life and to have shared such incredible experiences with such an incredible, passionate and driven man.
Even with this, I am still broken. I am devastated. I am mourning and grieving for myself who lost my best friend, our children who lost their father, our daughter who is due in August and won't ever get to meet her father, for Brian who I know went out thinking about me and our kids and all of you who understand and embraced him for the person he was. I'm truly just so sad.
Please keep my family in your thoughts, we have a long and painful road ahead of us as we learn how to live our lives without Brian physically in them.
We have scheduled a service and reception for him, I invite you all to please join us if you're able to. I understand it's a long and expensive trip for many of you and please know there are no hard feelings if you're not able to attend. If you have anything you'd like to send to include in the ceremony, please just message me. If you have a poem, story, message or anything else you'd like read, please send that to me also, no later than Tuesday. All are welcome to attend.
Brian's services are planned for:
Saturday, June 2nd, 2018 @ 3PM Pearl Harbor Main Chapel 1601 Frederick St. JBPHH, HI 96860
This is on Pearl Harbor base but we are working on arranging transportation for those without military ID and I will make sure to post a message in the next few days of instructions of how to get on base for those who don't have ID.
A reception will follow immediately after the ceremony at: COM PAC FLT Admirals Boat House 57 Arizona Dr. Honolulu, HI 96861
(This is not on base but very close by- next to Restaurant 604 by Rainbow Bay Marina)
Again, thank you for all of your love and support during this terribly sad time. If you have any questions, please feel free to message me on here and I will respond as soon as possible. Also, a GoFundMe page was set up to help my family if you're able to donate and/or share, I promise you it is very much appreciated.
