Hello @Mikeb1, I am so sorry for the heartbreaking loss of your son. You are not alone - many of our members have experienced the loss of a child and will understand some of what you are going through.

The first Christmas after the death of our loved one can be particularly difficult. We have a page on Coping with grief at Christmas which you might find helpful to read right now. Please do think about getting some extra support for yourself, @Mikeb1. You may want to get in touch with one of the these organisations:
