Aaron Carterthe bride of Melanie Martin just had her first vacation without him…and she and her family found a way to honor the late singer.
Carter family sources tell TMZ … Melanie and Prince – the son she shared with Aaron – spent Turkey Day with his family. Prince just celebrated his first birthday.
We’re told Aaron was responsible for cooking the turkey, so this time Melanie and her family tackled the chore in Aaron’s honor… doing their best to match his cooking skills.
Melanie also kept up another of Aaron’s Thanksgiving traditions…he always loved watching 2 movies on Turkey Day – “Home Alone” and “Iron Man” – so Melanie and the brood watched both.
Obviously, the first holidays after the death of a loved one are super hard… Mélanie’s sister, Jenniferbrought a four-legged friend to the family reunion…Aaron’s dog, Zelda.
TMZ broke the story… Jennifer and her fiancé Max caught in Zeldathe 3 and a half year old german shepherd the next day Aaron passed. Mélanie was delighted to see the doggie.
Melanie has been through a tough Thanksgiving and she dreads December, which is filled with holidays and milestones. December was Aaron’s birthday month and their anniversary.
Melanie is still trying to process Aaron’s death…it’s one day at a time.
