My Son Mark

I lost my eldest son Mark," on the 23rd February this year,he was 56 .It was such a sudden death i still cant believe hes gone .Mark was a gentle soul who loved nature and wildlife, he had loads of friends the chapel was packed. He loved to travel and had been to loads of different countries throughout his life. He had several relationships but never settled down with anyone. He is so missed by everyone but especially me and his 2 younger brothers. This grief of losing a child is the worst i have known.

My heart reaches out to you and my soul. I lost my son a month ago - he was 57 and full of life and love. He died after a botched operation for obstruction in intestines. One minute he was here the next minute he was gone! Such utter shock! Such anguish and anger. I’ve never known such deep deep sorrow which creates such searing agony. Why? Everyone loved him. I don’t know how I’m to survive without him?
