The Ebersols say the first anniversary of Teddy's death was a difficult but a meaningful time for the whole family. "[The children] chose to come home," Dick says. "Susan and I thought we should go someplace else for [the anniversary], and all four of the kids said, 'No, no, we want to go home.'"
"I thought it was the closest I'd ever been with [the family]," Charlie says. "The anniversary [day] was tough, but that week ... I never felt closer and happier to be with my family. We were all worried that it was going to be this miserable week, ... [but] it was a celebration."
