Death of father

My father died 2.5 weeks ago, it was completely unexpected. I am feeling overwhelmed at the moment and my partner and I are also in the process of splitting up. I’m not sure where to turn for help, as I think I definitely need it. Any advise would be much appreciated xxx

Hi. My dad died 30/11 and I feel so very alone. I don’t know the answer for you but I wanted to tell you, you are not alone. I know it feels like you are right now. Xxx

My mum died 4 weeks ago suddenly. Sending you big hugs at this very difficult time x
