Ohh lovely i am so so sorry for your loss and i feel your pain. I wish i had answers for you but i dont. I believe that our loved ones never ever leave us. If you can, try and take a little comfort in thos. Alfhough they arent woth us in body, they are woth us in spirit. Sending you all my live.
Thank you for your lovely message.
Harry is always with me, i firmly believe that too x
@CM001 I am so sorry to read of your loss, yours is a situation I find impossible to contemplate. There are simply no answers.
Please, just try and live one day at a time, it’s impossible to believe that your son Harry would want what troubled him to destroy you too.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help and if people ask you how you are, tell them the truth, not perhaps what they’ll want to hear.
Try and be kind to yourself, don’t feel guilty for what you can’t change; a widowed friend told me that and it’s proved very good advice.
I can offer nothing other than my sympathy and the wish that with time solace will come.
Thank you for your lovely message. I just need Harry so much. I actually respect his decision to go as he was very ill and wanted to do it. Harry always said that it isnt me, he was leaving his mind. Popr boy, what a choice! But where does that leave me…Harry was 25, and my world. Poor boy xxx
They are always with us xx
Harry is always with me. And im counting the days when I’ll be him. This is so hard. Thank you for the verse, its lovely x
