I lost my 19-year-old daughter to a house fire. She was the youngest of my three children. I still can’t believe she’s gone. She’s been gone 50 days today she passed away on a Monday, February 20. I’m still at a loss for words I know she’s with God, but it’s still hard to believe that I had to bury one of my children instead of my children, having to bury me, which is supposed to happen, but that’s not the normal thing anymore I guess more and more people are losing their children at different ages to different things. I’m learning to cope but still haven’t got used to her not being here still feel so weird.
I’m part of the Online Community team and I can see that you are new to the community - I’d like to thank you for bravely starting this thread. I’m so sorry to hear about your daughter. Most community members have sadly experienced the death of a loved one and so will understand some of what you are going through.
I’m sure someone will be along to offer their support, but I wanted to share a few Sue Ryder resources with you that might be helpful.
