I lost my lovely daughter in law Alison in April to cancer, my wonderful friend Andy who died in his sleep in September and my beloved son aged 25 to suicide last month. I hate this year with a vengeance.

That's very sad Smurf, so sorry to read your news.

M0nica Thu 15-Nov-18 16:20:36

Oh, smurf how dreadful, I cannot say more than that, because with all the love and support in the world, nothing can take away from the fact that three people so dear to you have died in such a short space of time.

A terrible year for you indeed. I am so sorry to read what you have had to cope with. Take time to care for yourself. ?

Grannyben Thu 15-Nov-18 19:07:33

I never know what to say when I read posts like this. Sorry just doesn't seem enough but, I am genuinely so sorry for the sadness you are going through.

Iam64 Thu 15-Nov-18 19:32:06

Smurf, it has indeed been a very tough year for you. Many of us will have experienced bereavements, especially given our time of life but, to have two young people die adds to the loss x

Jalima1108 Thu 15-Nov-18 20:33:19

What a dreadful time you are having Smurf.
I do hope that you have some support and are able to be a support, too, to those close to you flowers

Smurf what a terrible year for you, I can't begin to understand how you must feel. I can only offer my thoughts and prayers and hope you feel some support here on GN.

jenpax Thu 15-Nov-18 21:12:13

Just what has already been said ?

GrandmaMoira Thu 15-Nov-18 21:17:55

I'm sorry for your losses.

Smiley4 Thu 15-Nov-18 21:21:20

So sorry Smurf. What a terribly tragic year. I’ve lost someone to suicide, and a friend to cancer and lost a child. I’m not saying that for sympathy, it’s just that
Sometimes I thought I’d never get through. I just wanted to say that you do, and you will. Slowly, take baby steps, you do learn to live again.
I hope you have someone you can talk to about the ones you’ve lost, but also how YOU feel. If not, talk on here.
God bless. Xxx
