A year ago Oscar Pistorius couldn’t have been happier. His Twitter page was flooded with online messages of congrats and well wishes for his birthday.

He replied to many of them. “Thank you for all the birthday wishes and all the messages of love and support!! Sure today is going to be epic!:)”

And he even mentioned Reeva Steenkamp after her best friend, Gina Myers, wished him well. “Thx Gi! Wish @reevasteenkamp was here! RT @gi_myers: Happy happiest ozzy! @OscarPistorius!! U deserve all the bestest coz u ARE the bestest.

This year’s celebrations are bound to be far more subdued. In little more than three months the athlete will go to trial for the murder of Reeva. Friends and family members have not yet taken to Twitter to wish Oscar well.
