It's been nearly 15 months since his wife was murdered and Mike Fortenberry said his family is doing the best they can.
Diane Fortenberry, 51, was killed by Jeffery Brooks on May 20, 2011, when she walked in on Brooks burglarizing her rural Osakis home.
"The destruction to the family unit when you lose mom and a best friend - that's been a hard thing to overcome," Mike said.
The Fortenberrys have two sons - Colter and Grayson.
