Firstly, sorry for all your loss.
Thank you so much for being so honest, there is so much great advice in there, which has obviously come about from so much heartbreak.
I can’t agree enough with the need to share how we feel and I would add that it’s ok to feel whatever we feel. I can’t say I have had to go through half that you have, but I know…[Read more]

Only just come across this.
