LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The children of beaten San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow are speaking out for the first time. For 12-year-old Tyler and Tabitha, 8, it’s going to be a sad and emotional Father’s Day as Stow remains in a coma.

“I’m just accepting it the way it is instead of trying to change what really is happening,” Tyler said.

Stow’s children admit this will be a challenging weekend as they continue to cope with the reality that life without their dad as they know him just isn’t the same.

“I can’t really judge other dads or anything… but he was pretty special,” Tyler said. “I spent a lot of time with him so it’s like completely different not going with him every weekend or every Thursday.”

Bryan’s ex-wife and mother of Stow’s two kids, Jackie Kain, has taken the kids to visit their father twice.

“The first visit was amazing. Bryan’s eye was open and he was actually tracking the kids when they would move around the room. That made the kids extremely happy,” Kain said on Stow’s support Web site.

On Thursday, Stow’s family updated the site dedicated to him saying doctors are still adjusting his seizure medications. They say that, “if he hears us, he knows that this Father’s Day is approaching… Bryan will make it through and we believe his children are his motivation.”

The Giants fan was brutally beaten by two men at the Dodgers home open on March 31.

The LAPD has named one suspect, Giovanni Ramirez, who’s in custody on unrelated charges.

A parole hearing for Ramirez is scheduled for Monday. He has not yet been charged in connection with Stow’s beating.

    Ex-wife? You just now report he was divorced?

      I too, must have missed that detail.

      Hope they catch the other pieces of trash(guy and female).

    2. Karen says:

      Why does it matter? I knew that from the very beginning because the press NEVER mentioned the wife until now.

  2. dan says:

    I’m sorry….but keep the kids out of it.

    1. Karen says:

      The kids SHOULD have a say considering the SUSPECT’S KID claims her dad didn’t do it. Equal time.

      Father’s Day is tomorrow and ever since their father was beat to a pulp by vicious thugs, they have had 2 visits with him. As Stow’s child said, THEY USED TO SEE HIM ON THE WEEKENDS.

      What a loss and for what?

      Vicious thugs who cause mayhem are physically OK and they should be the ones in a coma. We don’t need these thugs’ low IQ brains anyway.

    “A parole hearing for Ramirez is scheduled for Monday. He has not yet been charged in connection with Stow’s beating.”

    That’s because new evidence points to him NOT being the right guy, which shows LAPD has again, botched another investigation; now the signs are down, the “wanted” posters removed, and it’s out of peoples’ minds because everyone thought this was done deal – merely because of the LAPD’s arrogance – but the real suspect may still be out there, living loose, and laughing about it – and nobody is looking for him anymore or paying attention to connect the dots to a “wanted” poster. Dumb LAPD.

    Another one bites the dust lapd you guys can’t investigate a bag lunch or a loose doughnut

    If Brian Stow would have been a LEO (law enforcement officer from any department) the people that did the beating would have been arrested within 48 hours of the incident. Life is not fare. Regardless of how many times the LAPD says “we are doing our best”…they are NOT…they started “doing their best” days after the incident…they know they can’t wait days…lol. My uncle patrols Van Nuys with LAPD and the horrific investigative stories I hear on a regular basis are very disturbing…I will stop hear before the LAPD gets my IP address and comes to interview me.
