How do we get through this

Recently lost my partner aged 56 to covid also the father to my children

Hello Susie, I am so sorry for the loss of your partner. It’s the toughest, most excruciating pain in the world. I’m sorry too, that your children have lost their dad. How many children do you have? How old?

How do we get through this? I don’t honestly know but we do. It’s now been 3 years since my husband died and here I am. I miss him every single minute of every single day. My love for him continues to grow. Who would have thought that we could fall more in love with someone who has passed? This site has played a huge part in my journey and has been a comfort. I hope it helps you too Susie. You are not alone in your grief. Sending love and hugs xx

Oh Susie, I am so sorry your little one has lost her daddy. I hope your son is recovering from his cancer. What a lot you have to cope with. It brings a quote to mind:
‘You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.’
Take comfort from your darling children. Your man lives on in them. Stay strong Susie xx
