Dear Eleni

I am so very sorry you’ve lost your lovely son. I know your pain as I lost my son in October 2019.

I didn’t want to carry on…couldn’t see a point…that feeling did pass eventually. Please be kind to yourself you will be in shock and it’s literally like a bomb has gone off in your life. I meditate- that calms those feelings of panic.

My son was Henry and he was just thirty years old. We were close and it feels like you’ve lost a part of yourself forever. I’m thinking of you and hope you can find support.

This site is amazing- do keep posting. You are not alone…there are so many of us here for you.

Tell us about your son when you can.

Big hugs and love
Purple
