Hi Lisa
I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your son. We lost our son, who was 41, 12 weeks ago, so I understand just what you are going through at this time. He was severely disabled and I had cared for him all his life so it has been so hard to carry on since loosing him.
like you we had to wait for a coroners report which made it difficult to make arrangements and then when the report came it had lots of inaccuracies in it, including the date of his death. I was horrified and this added to the grief we were feeling.
There are no words I can say at this time to help you as the pain is so raw and nothing anyone says helps. I find I just have to take each day at a time and some days are better than others. As a family it is so hard as each one is dealing with their own grief. I send you my love and wish I could help you. Please feel free to talk to me if you would like to.

Hi lisa63. So sorry to see what you are going through. My daughter was also 39 and died in January, it wasn’t expected and we are still waiting for the inquest in December. There are no words to express the pain and shock and sheer misery that you are experiencing. I have found support and understanding on here and hope you do too. Best advice I had was to take one day or even one hour at a time. Don’t expect too much of yourself and be gently with yourself. Hugs xxxx
