Nicole Brown Simpson's youngest sister Tanya Brown is planning a big birthday party for Nicole!
"I know this is what Nicole would have wanted," Tanya told The Enquirer.
"Birthday parties were a time of special happiness for her and I want this one to serve as a reminder of all the good times she gave us."
In an exclusive interview, Tanya revealed the bittersweet details of how the family will celebrate Nicole's 36th birthday to keep her memory alive for her children who are living with their grandparents.
"The month between Mother's Day and the anniversary of Nicole's murder on June 12 is going to be a tough time for our family," said Tanya. "But I want to celebrate her birthday on May 19 just like always..."
"I'll decorate the house with streamers and party favors. I'm planning on a rich triple-layer chocolate birthday cake - Nicole's favorite - with ice cream, candles and all the trimmings. And I'll give out party hats to our family and friends.
"I want to leave an empty chair in front of the cake for Nicole. I know she'll look down at us with a big smile on her face when we sing Happy Birthday.
"We'll all blow out the candles, wishing for a happy and prosperous life of all of us."
