A year ago today

It is a year ago today that I lost my father to prostate cancer, within that year I have recently lost my beloved sister in June also. I feel completely in shock at losing them both in quick succession and my sister seemed so healthy until recently. I would be very grateful if anyone could give me any tips on how to cope, I type this post with tears rolling down my face as I find life so difficult and raw with emotion. My Dad and sister are buried together and I left some roses on their grave today. Someone said the only way is through the grief and in a forward direction but I’m not sure what that means day to day x

Take good care,

Sorry for your loss. All I can say is take it hour by hour on bad days, and good days will appear. I lost my Mum Oct 2020, my Dad Dec 2021 and my son March this year. Totally lost day. We will get there hopefully :heart: xx
