Dear friends, subscribers and everyone that reads my blog.
As you know my son died unexpectedly and I’ve been away arranging his funeral and everything that goes with that. His sisters are distraught and its horrible to see them crying and grieving.
Sadly a cause of death hasn’t been asertained as there were no obvious causes, he didn’t take drugs or drink heavily and he didn’t take his own life, he fell asleep and didn’t wake up.
Because there isn’t an obvious cause of death there will be an inquest in October but I’ve been warned that I may never find out way. So many young adults die like this but it’s hardly spoken about.
As for me I’m trying to cope with my grief and the loss of my only son. Joseph was an amazing young man and he was loved and missed by so many people.
I will hopefully be able to update the blog this week, it’ll do me good and it will be a big distraction for me.
I’ll see you on Thursday with an updated blog.
Thanks for your patience

Take your time, go at your own pace. This pain may not leave you, but you will learn to live with it. I am so, so sorry. xx
So sorry to hear your sad news and hope this helps a little
I Did Not Die
Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die.
Thank you so much this is beautiful
Empathy lovely, the pain of losing a child is so great; all I can say it – it does ease. You are in my thoughts xx

Hello Charlotte, am so sorry of your loss, take your time to grieve, and when you are ready we’ll be waiting to read them. Tony x
Hello Charlotte, just take your time and be kind to yourself, you’ve lost a member of your family, and It takes time to grieve. I look forward to reading your blog when you decide to write It. Tony x
So sorry to hear that Charlotte, you must take as long as you need to attend to you and your family`s needs.
“TFFT!” that you’re still with us, and obv sorry to hear about your son’s death, esp as there no obv reason why.
clearly, the last thing you needed at the moment (is it ever?), and not a lot else i can say at mo that you likely haven’t already heard b4 anyway, really…
however, hang on in there Charlotte… i know from exp that it DOES get easier with time to cope with a death in the family, and while the long term covid scenario is obv largely still an unknown, you’re clearly a battler, yh?
thinking of yourself & your daughter at what is clearly a difficult time. x
Sending lots of love to you.
I’ve been through the loss of a child, albeit as an adult, and it is not “proper” in this day and age to have to arrange a funeral for one’s offspring.
Come back to your normal posting as and when you can.
Your readers will still be here for you.

Oh Charlotte you must be so brave to be facing this unimaginable pain. Our children are not meant to die before us it upsets the natural order. I cannot even imagine what you are going through but sending all my love to you and your daughters 💜💜💜💜
Good to hear from you. Really sad to see this and hope you feel better soon. Ten years ago, I found my brother who I lived with, who had died, although he was older, and it’s a shock. Sending you a virtual hug. X
