Dear tappman,
What a heartbreaking loss you have suffered. It is good that you have come to this site where you will find posts from others who have lost a child. I hope and trust that some of them will reach out to you. They will know best how to give support because they have gone through it. I lost my parents, so my grief is different, bu t I do know the pain of loss.
There is an organisation called The Compasisonate Frends.
They support bereaved parents and their families. They have a telephone helpline that may be of interest to you: 0345 123 2304, open every day of the year from 10:00 – 16:00 and 19:00 – 22:00. Their volunteers are bereaved parents. This is the link to their website:

I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your daughter, you must be devastated, I can only imagine what it must feel like, hopefully you will find help from this site, Sue Ryder also provides bereavement counselling, at the moment it is over the phone, but this is something you might feel could help you, sending love xx

My daughter or 19 passed away 6 weeks ago to cancer, she was my life…I love her more than anything in the world. There is a good book called Beyond Tears, its very good and it does make you realise that the feelings you have are normal and that you’re not alone. I am so sorry that you lost your daughter, its heartbreaking…and to anyone else here talking of their loss…I have to tuck her away in my mind to just get out of bed…keeping busy helps and surrounding yourself with people who love also helps…as they say time is a healer and as the days go by I feel more at ease…the pain and devastation never leaves you.
