How sad, nellie, especially as they were such young people. I'm sure you made all their lives a bit brighter just by being you! smile

Yes - the loss of a young person is so hard - they are just coming into their own personalities. Thinking of you.

Thank you all it is my son I worry about,each one that happens just makes the shell he puts round himself that little bit thicker,almost as though he has become hardened to it,we do seem to have lost a lot of young friends over the years.
When we go to Essex we seem to visit more graves in one outing,than we do houses... sad, I seem to be able to through counselling etc be able to deal with the knocks we have had,but like a lot of men won't seek help,till he seems that much harder and uncaring when in fact I know he is as soft hearted as me....
