Losing my beloved daughter

My daughter died last November, she was just 40. She was diagnosed in july with stage 4 bowel cancer which had spread to the liver.
She left behind 2 small boys aged 6 and 4 both autistic.
She was my best friend and i miss her so much, i feel her loss is getting worse not better.

Hi Babs so sorry for the loss of your daughter I know exactly how you are feeling my daughter was 25 when she died from breast cancer which very quickly turns to stage 4 liver cancer it was Very aggressive. She to leaves a little boy Theo who is 4. Yrs old. I’m still going through all different emotions each day is different some days I don’t want to wake up and I struggle through the day but I have to keep going as I have other daughters and grandkids. But Leah was my baby of my other girls. It’s heartbreaking but I still fight on. And one day I hope this pain will ease for us all take care. Love shellyanne XX :heart:

I am so sorry. So very sad. How we cope i dont really know but i wasnt given a choice so we have too dont we.
I miss her every day and i agree, some days i dont cope, like yesterday, i went home from work as got so upset, i know alot of people where i work who are getting to hear about her passing away and they talk to me about it and i cant cope with it.
Hope it gets easier in time.xx
