December 2022

The reality of when your loved one ends their life….. 🥺

A phone call during lockdown with the news that I never wanted (or expected) to hear and then a trip to the police station to collect his belongings that he had on him when he departed that sad sad day 😢

A few large plastic bags with stickers on. No name. Just numbers and a box reference. 😥

Just seeing these again today (I haven’t been able to dispose of them yet) makes me realise just how much devastation we went through in those very early days. How cold it felt when he was found…..a call, reference numbers, the coroner’s contact details and a few bags. And that was it.🥺

And those of us left behind in complete shock and not knowing what to do next.

It’s not been and easy 2 and a half years that’s for sure. It’s opened my eyes to what’s important and what’s not. It’s made me realise just how truly precious we are as humans and no days are guaranteed.
So today I’m just feeling gratitude in abundance for my loved ones around me, for all of you here, and hopefully making my brother smile with all that I’m doing.
