Struggling with our grief

We lost our beloved son on December 29th after 3 horrendous months of watching him suffer with cancer. He was just 42. We had a very close relationship he was very caring and loving to us. He was only married 4 years, he had 2 children in a previous relationship. They are 19 and 17. He lived a 4 hour drive away with his Wife, the past 3 months we have been renting accommodation near him and spending as much time with him as possible. He was very strong and positive, his last words to his Wife were we will beat this. I can’t describe the pain of losing him we cry all the time and can’t imagine ever surviving without him. He spoke to us by video call every day when we couldn’t get to see him. It is his funeral on Tuesday and we are dreading it so much. Our beautiful boy how can he be gone from us forever.

So very sorry that you have lost your dear son. No words really just sending you love and hugs to get through this awful time. X

I am so very sorry for your loss. I to list my son 26 wks ago and I understand the pain you’re feeling. You will be in my thoughts on Tuesday. For now don’t think beyond that day. And ask your son for strength to get through the funeral. That’s what I done and I know he was with me. Take good care x

Thank you. I just feel so very sad all the time now, joy has completely gone from our lives now. Both my husband and I are crying almost every day it’s a living nightmare x

I’m so sorry to hear about your son I really am, I’m living this life too. I lost mine 10 weeks ago & this world looks off kilter. Living in a vacuum of yearning, anxiety, pain & torrid sleeps. Sometimes you can’t catch your breath, then you shake your head in denial & the future ? I can’t go there. I had no idea of the pain, I’d read about people losing children & shudder but I couldn’t relate.
It is a living nightmare, sending you a hug x
