    I am not looking for sympathy anyone. On January 4th my partner since I was 16 years old, she was 14, passed away suddenly in her sleep. I am left with 2 amazing little strong Girls, Courtney who is 9 and Chloe who is 8.
    I thought I would come clean as when I was last here I was on horrific Dr's Medication and in a really unstable position. The very person who saved me was my 'Dawn'
    [​IMG]

    That is my Dawn. She was my Rock, my best friend and also my soul mate. She is all I have ever known. When I found her dead on January the 4th it was me and my Girls, my Girls almost came into the door, I somehow managed to find the strength of mind to calmly put them to the other side of the house with tablets and headsets and call 999. I knew instantly she was gone. It's been just over 3 months now and Dawns help for me to trade 'Brain for Pain' has left me in a position when I can look after my 2 Girls.

    When Aberdeen came to Glasgow last month, yeah that DIRE 0-0 game, some friends on Twitter managed to get us 3 tickets for Lisbon Lions upper and, well they hated it. Dawn was a HUGE Hearts fan as we are both from North West Edinburgh. After the Funeral we went back to Tyncastle and I must thank this man for being there as we all walked in. Right away he shook my hand, gave his sorrys and went right for my 2 Daughters (WHO HATE FOOTBALL) I will get to the story of 'That game against Aberdeen) :56:
    [​IMG]

    The week leading up to the Celtic 0-0 Aberdeen game I put on the Kitchen weekly ahead schedule "GOING WEST FOR A SURPRISE" AND GOSH WERE THEY EXITED!!! :62: I kept it a secret and we got to the stadium and both started to cry :97: They hate Football PERIOD. Hate Hearts, just hate Football. I wish it wasn't so cold that day and we had won, maybe they would have liked it? :54:

    :56:Check the nick of their wee faces....

    [​IMG]

    This is an image before the game but they fair cheered up at McDonalds and laughed after I took this picture. We call ourselves #TAG3 (Team Alpha Gibson 3)...Basically if something needs done. Homework, cleaning and they are involved I act like a football manager and scream "TAG3 LETS ROLL" And they love it. :56: It is the hardest thing I have ever had to go through in my life. I know before I annoyed and pi$$ed people off, but I can only say sorry. I know Gaffa (I think) is banned and I did pay my dues for the Special room :( I am not asking for special treatment. Reason I posted this as a lot of people over on Twitter and Facebook know who I am. If you want to join me on Twitter it's @ShaunyCeltic or @ShaunyScot if you wants to follow my Fun Group it's: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ScottishMadneessGroup/ And if you RESPECTFULLY AND WITH CARE want to join my Facebook wall, here is the link, please feel free. https://www.facebook.com/SharingUTTERBullshit - I am but a stupid North Edinburgh Bhoy. I was on the Pod Black Brimmer when we ran it, it is being renamed and we will be back next season to have more Podcast fun. I just wanted to reach out to all the people who sent messages of support to me and my Girls and paid respects to my Dawn all over Social Media. #TAG3 is strong and stable here in the a cracking part of Edinburgh.

    Courtney Grace Gibson (9) Myself and Chloe Dawn Gibson (8) - Today we had fun, tomorrow we may cry. But let me tell ya, the Celtic family all over Social Media have been amazing. We truly are a special bunch of people connected to the same things... #HHS

    So sorry for you're loss shauny mate, thats heartbreaking.
    I hope you have enough family/friends around you incase you need that shoulder
    to lean on if needed.
    I'm sure your wee girls are a tower of strength to you and keep you going and they have a loving dad beside them who will always be there for them.
    Best of luck to you for the future and always keep the faith :shamrock:
