Loss of friend

Hi my first time on here.
My sister lost her partner, he was 39. Was awful, I looked after him whilst in the hospital, however he did not get home. We all loved her partner and I always saw him as a brother. I am trying to support my sister and have been staying with her since April. She is struggling, his sons are struggling. They are 18, 17 and 12. I am also devastated and am struggling with his death. Because it was so quick, I feel like he has not died and he is just away.

Hello @Louisa2,

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 and sharing how you are feeling. I’m so sorry to hear about your brother-in-law. 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.

I really hope you find the community helpful and a good source of support and I also hope you feel you can access more support should you need it.
Thank you again for sharing – please keep reaching out and know that you are not alone.

Take care,
