Day 25 Picture 25

Adam Rogers. Adam is my brother, at the start of July he was killed in a senseless attack on the streets of Blackburn. He was 24 years old and did not have a bad bone in his body. The loss to me and my family has been incredible, it is hard to talk about without falling into cliché but he is in all of our minds an awful lot and we miss him like crazy. We are also in limbo at the moment as we are waiting for the trail in January. Even with all of this, somehow my family has managed to 'do' Christmas. There have been a few sad moments but there have been a great deal of nice moments... a great meal and a lot of love. Annie and Fergus have been brilliant and given the day some kind of focus but everyone has been there and worked hard to make the best Christmas possible. I am very lucky and I am from good people and I am sure we will all get through this but it is not easy but I can report there was a good few smiles today.
