Bereaved dad
« on: May 26, 2020, 08:56:55 PM »
Hello from Elliot's bereaved dad.

Elliot was just 30 when he died very unexpectedly 27 weeks ago.  Like many people here Iím still counting the days & weeks, as they turn into months.  Wanting so much to go back 7 months to stop this from happening.

Iíve now read 3 books, and they have helped me enormously.  To mark Elliotís birthday, I have built a life celebration/memorial website.  A process that has been both therapeutic and heartbreaking. 

Iím hoping that the information that Iíve amassed can help others that are members of this awful club, and at the same time, learn from your experiences too.

My best wishes to you all.


David

So very sorry to hear about your son, David. Sending you a welcome hug.  :hug: There can be nothing more painful than what you have been through, but everyone here will feel for you. Loss is such a terrible thing.  :hearts:

Finding a way to help others is definitely a help, has certainly helped me over the years  :hearts:  even if you help just one person, you never know it may mean the world to that person
Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise. 
Hold on in there xx
