June 21 - First Anniversary

Yesterday and today have been difficult days. Yesterday was Father's Day and Anthony disappeared on Father's Day, 2009. And of course, today is the official 1 year anniversary of his disappearance.

As is the case with many missing person cases, I feel someone out there knows something about Anthony's location. They may have either helped him leave town or they may know where his body is.

There is not 1 second of any day that someone in our family is not thinking about Anthony. Our thoughts are all over the place. At times we are thinking of the good times that we have had with him or about how kind and generous he is or we are just wondering where can he be. We long for the day to even have Anthony back with us or at least to get some closure.

We pray for answers for all families with missing loved ones.

Year Anniversary is Near

For the most part anniversaries are happy occasions. But not this one. I never expected a year to pass and that we wouldn't know where Anthony was. I know there are many people that have been waiting for years and years to get news on their missing loved ones and my heart goes out to them!

I changed up the look of the blog to an outdoorsy look. Anthony loved to be outside. He loved to hike around, fish, hunt, or just sit on a porch and talk with dear friends. Anthony loved to be around family and friends. He was very sociable and actually hated doing anything alone.

We, of course, all miss him dearly. His Mom and Dad saw him every month if not more often. And they talked to him almost daily on the phone. And not hearing from him for one year has been hard plus we have no closure.

We again thank all of you for your prayers, help with searches, help with vigil and all that you have done. It is great to know that we are surrounded by friends and loved ones at this time.
