My brother, Billy, died four years ago today (5/16/2011). That year, 2011, was possibly the most difficult year of my life. I learned so much about myself that year. In the strangest contradiction I could imagine, I am so thankful that I LIVED through that painful year by moving forward with decisions despite the struggle I was experiencing. I chose to persevere.
I’ve written about how the death of my brother, Billy Malnati, has been an impact in my life. Initially, losing Billy felt like it could have a negative impact on my family, but I personally made a strong effort to turn my sorrow into joy. I understood that, despite the difficulties that I was going through, there were others that had it much worse than me. I chose to GIVE so that I would focus on others which led me stop feeling sorry for myself.
