A mums final goodbye (to my son)

Mums final goodbye xx

Conor, you were, and always will be my first born and only son.

I was only 25 when I had you, which is so young;

but it is an age that you will never become!

I worked so hard to give you a good life and experiences that others would never know;

But little did I know that I could not protect you forever, and would be forced to let you go.

You were more like me then you ever knew;

Striving to achieve and become successful in everything you do.

But life and luck were not on your side;

And all we could ask was WHY! WHY! WHY!

You did not deserve what has happened to you,

And I will fight for justice, as it’s the right thing to do.

You will be missed by so many and the love will remain in our heart,

But we will never understand the incident that tore us apart.

Sleep well my baby!

We will bring you home and there you will stay, until we are able to meet again some day.

— with Conor Wells.

I just wanted to say how touched I was by your post and more so by the presence of photos, which not many people add and which make it all the more real.
I am very sorry for your loss.

Thankyou x

What a handsome lovely young man. I’m so sorry for your loss. Life is too cruel. That is a lovely tribute.

I am so moved by your post. I lost my son Henry on the 20th October and my heart is forever broken. He was 30 years and 15 days old.

We are forever bound by love to our children and the physical grief we feel that they have left this world is crippling and I’m so sorry you are having to cope with such a terrible loss. No one should have to feel the pain of losing their child.

I hope you have kind and loving people around to support you.

Much love and hugs

Beautiful son, beautiful words. x x
