Im going throught stages of grief myself after losing my mum 4 weeks ago and i have been messaging on here for a few days now. There are many people all with different experiences to tell of pain and grieving someone close. I have read other messages from parents who have lost children so hopefully you will connect with someone soon. I just had to message you my lovely to say be strong and to send you a big hug❤️

Hi Diane. I’m so sorry for your loss. I lost my grandson in August at 9 weeks and have no idea how to cope with the grief both for my grandson and for my son.
