PARKLAND (CBSMiami) – Tuesday was a bittersweet birthday for Fred Guttenberg. “Today is my second birthday without my daughter,” he said. “I started my birthday today at a cemetery.” Life for Guttenberg, who turned 54 on Tuesday, will never be the same after his daughter, Jaime, was murdered at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February 2018. “I don’t get to have a regular birthday ever again,” he told CBS4’s Carey Codd. “Everything I do now is about how I honor my daughter going forward.”
