Hello, I’m jess and really glad I found this page. I lost my mum and dad last year (6months apart). Absolutely horrible losing them both in the same year, and they were young 59/60. I’m struggling at the moment. Just feel so sad my 2 boys will not remember my mum. Help…

Dear Jess,

Welcome to the Sue Ryder Online Community. I’m so sorry to hear about the death of your mum and dad. I cannot imagine how terrible it must be to lose both your parents in such a short amount of time.

I’m glad you’re finding our online community helpful. A lot of our users have also lost their parents, and they can understand what you are going through. Here are some conversations you might be interested in:




Are you receiving any kind of counseling or bereavement support? If you are not, talking to your GP is a good first step, as they can refer you to the appropriate services. You can also get in touch with Cruse Bereavement Care, a charity that offers confidential support for adults and children by telephone, email or face-to-face: https://www.cruse.org.uk/

If there’s anything I can help with, you can private message me, or email me on online.community@sueryder.org.

Best wishes,
