Dear @Sue31

Welcome to the Community, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your sons. There are no words to describe the pain of losing a child.

There is an organisation called The Compassionate Friends which supports bereaved parents and families. There is a helpline 0345 123 2304 you can call to talk to a volunteer who is a bereaved parent.

Child Bereavement UK are also available for support and have resources and information. You can also search to see what support groups are available by typing your location into the search menu. They also offer a helpline for someone to talk to on 0800 02 888 40.

If you have not done so already, it would be worth considering booking an appointment with your doctor to see how they can support you and let them know how you are feeling.

You are not alone, please continue to reach out here any time.

Take care.
