I don’t know where to start…

I lost my mum on 15th August. My parents were on a flight from Australia to London when she suddenly collapsed mid flight with the plane being diverted to a country in Europe. Turns out she had a pulmonary embolism which resulted in a cranium hernia and subsequent bleed, role on a week and she was gone. She was only 62, due to covid I hadn’t seen her for 3 years, she was coming over to spend the summer with my two girls and finally meet my son. Now I don’t know where to start with processing anything!!!


I’m so sorry to hear about your mum @Stacey1. I can imagine your whole family must be reeling from this, and I hope you may be able to talk with and comfort each other.

Do you have access to any kind of bereavement counselling or support? The Sue Ryder site offers some I believe, as well as tools and information that may be useful. Don’t know if this will work but here are couple of links copied from another part of their site.
