It’s the hardest thing you will ever bear. I lost my son Henry in 2019…shortly after his 30th birthday. I do understand how you are feeling.
It doesn’t get easier - how can it.
But I’ve become accustomed to it…someone here said it’s like the ocean…lapping at your feet and then a huge wave comes and engulfs you. Birthdays. Anniversaries and Christmas are so tough
I’m sending you love and a hug
Thank you Purple, I’ve never felt so empty in my life, God bless your son Henry xxx
