It's lovely to come back here here to the Guestbook and read your beautiful wise compassionate words . It is
8 years now without my beautiful Freya and I guess this life now is as good as it ever will be.
It has taken this long for the awful rawness to go and what is left is a permanent deep sadness that tinges everything I do.
Life is so cruel to have our beautiful child torn away from us forever.
How do any of us ever survive?
A beautiful little grandchild helps a little and there is another on the way.
Freya would have been such an amazing Aunty.
I miss you my darling Freya Sophie Stephen xxx
Just want you to know Caron that I have both you and your precious Kris in my mind and in my heart. I am so very sorry for all that you are going through as I too lost my son, Patrick, now 14 years ago. It will be a long journey for you, and I know you will travel with a broken heart. My connection with TCF goes back all that time, from the dreadful days when I first found wonderful people there who gave such comfort and understanding and that I now count as my dearest friends. Nothing will replace your dear son, I know. I hope that when you feel ready, you too will find the energy to become involved with other bereaved parents as, I assure you, they understand in so many ways.
As far as family and friends go, we learn that so often it is just too difficult for them to know the depth of our sorrow. In other words hurt hurts. It seems we must attempt to be compassionate towards the uncompassionate. We become wiser people along the way. Stay strong - for your Kris' sake. JD
My son Kris, took his life on 17th August 2016. He was 36 and lived in my home, and this is where he died. I'm not coping with his death or how my other family members are behaving. I need someone to talk to please. Is there anyone on the Mornington Peninsula who can talk to me
THANKS KAREN FOR YOUR TIME AND SUPPORT ABOUT OUR TINY ANGEL RESTING IN PEACE. YOUR WORDS WERE VERY COMFORTING.SORRY ABOUT YOUR LOSS TOO.
Thanks Jenny for you time and support . Brett & Marylou

Hello Sonia, Please let us at The Compassionate Friends how you are getting on. Sounds like life is hard at the moment. Sending you strength. X
Dear Stephen, Please tell Mary and Peter that we at TCF send all the care we can to help them at this terrible time after the tragic loss of Geradin. Thank you for being in touch with us. It is hard for you to know what is the best thing to do. The best thing is to be patient with them as they grieve and let them grieve in their own way and in their and in their own time. They are entering what is a long an difficult road. They will need to know that you will continue to support them. Things will gradually lighten for them but as yet, and for some time they will not see that this could possibly happen nor do they wish it to. It is unimaginable for them to consider at this stage they could ever be happy again. Just know that their lives will be changed forever. I am so sorry.
You may like to report that I, a volunteer at TCF, lost my son to bowel cancer nearly 14 years ago. He also had two little children. I venture to say I have a deep understanding of the feelings of great loss of a precious child. I feel I have become somehow wiser and more compassionate through experiences.
I sincerely hope that when they are ready Mary and Peter will be in touch with TCF in Canterbury. They will be welcomed with love.
My niece Geraldin Lim Aichia passed away after battling colon Cancer just last Friday. It was only 3.5 months later after she was diagnosed with this deadly disease that she left us. We are distraught because she was only 36 years old and survive by her husband John and two lovely children. My sister Mary and her husband Peter surely need all the support they can.
I hope their will go through this difficult period. May her soul rest in peace.
