Last Christmas I bought an outfit for my grandson and three months later he was dead and laid out in my outfit !

What sad thing. So sorry to hear this - I realise that Christmas will be very hard for you and little one's parents. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

That is beyond tragic. Poor little mite. You and your family must be devastated and Christmas shopping will always bring back such poignant memories.

That must have been devastating for you. I am so sorry, and am thinking of you and your family.

Rosarie, I cannot imagine the pain you are feeling. Such a sad post. X

Rosarie that is the saddest post.
Would you like to tell us a little bit more about your grandson? How old was he?

What a disgusting post Bluebellwould

My grandson died shortly after his thirteenth birthday ! I canโ€™t believe that this time last year I was selecting an outfit for him to wear ! An outfit he was wearing when he was laid out ! Thank you for your kind comments !

Bluebellwould - I am heart broken and felt like shouting out to the whole world !

Iโ€™m very sorry, Rosarie. My cousin died tragically at the age of thirteen. That was over fifty years ago but it has always stayed with me. I wish you peace and love this Christmas season.

Blossoming Fri 10-Dec-21 01:14:18

I am so very sorry Rosarie, 13 is far too young. Iโ€™m hope you and your family can find comfort together.

Grannmarie Fri 10-Dec-21 01:20:43

I'm sending you love and prayers, Rosarie, to comfort you in your sorrow. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’•
I cannot imagine your grief on the loss of your Dear Grandson. What was his name?

I lost my dear brother to childhood leukaemia when he was 12 and I was 13 it has always affected me.

But I could not imagine the heartbreak of losing a beloved grandchild, or the sorrow of the parents.

Thinking of you, God bless you and comfort you in your sorrow. Try to remember happy times you shared together.

Rosarie Fri 10-Dec-21 02:32:21

My Grandsons name was Jack May he Rest In Peace !

Dottygran59 Fri 10-Dec-21 08:47:56

Oh Rosarie, I am so sorry to hear that you lost Jack. Nothing we can say can ease your pain, just know that we GNetters are thinking of you and sending hugs

DiscoDancer1975 Fri 10-Dec-21 09:44:57

My goodness, Iโ€™m so sorry. I believe Jackโ€™s with God now, and pray the rest of you can be at peace about that.

I shall pray for you all. God bless ๐Ÿ’
