My heart goes out to you at this very difficult time.
I lost my 31 year old son 9 months ago of a cardiac arrest.
Totally devastating and me and my daughter were both with him when he passed away.
Not the same situation I know but the pain is not dissimilar as we have both lost a son.
My son never had the chance to have his own child and I want you to remember that you have a constant reminder of your son which in time will bring you some comfort and happiness in the future.
I know it may not feel like that right now but believe me your son will live on in your grandchildren.
I know that will never bring your son back and my heart is with you,as I feel the same pain constantly xxx
