Painful milestones

Jack’s 22nd birthday came and went as did Christmas. We survived both but without much grace or respite. On 15 April 2019, he will be one year dead. Not sure we have too many lives left or the continuing strength to pass each of these milestones as the cycle is never ending and they start again each year.

  1. I don’t believe it ever gets better, you may just learn to cope, I don’t really know yet, it is too early for me. However I fully understand your indescribable grief having lost my beautiful daughter, wife, sister, and mother to three young children. Tomorrow the 27th October, at 11.10pm it will be 1 year for our family. Brain Cancer ripped our family apart and has left us with a void that can never been filled. My heart aches for you and your family Ken, I know your pain, sending you my heartfelt sympathies.
