Mrs G passed away last night in her sleep
Oh man, that’s the toughest thing to experience, you have my sympathies for your loss.
There’s plenty of time to discuss how you continue moving forward but now isn’t really the time. For the moment just take time to let yourself grieve and come to terms with your loss, is there anyone that can help out with the kids for a bit?
Keep in touch with us on here and have a read through the link that footflaps posted near the start of the thread.Posted 2 weeks agospawnofyorkshireSubscriber
So sorry to hear this and my deepest condolences. Go to the school and speak to the headteacher they may be able to help
Hug your kids and don’t worry about funeral costs, i have a feeling STW will help you out with some of that burden
Look after yourself, you’ve held a lot of weight on your shoulders with everything, don’t let this break youPosted 2 weeks agosomafunkSubscriber
So sorry gnusmus, Nothing i write can offer help with the pain and anguish you will be feeling but take solace in your family at this time.
And please try and contact the citizens advice for help regarding funeral arrangements, discretionary bereavement payments, help with funeral costs etc, it will be the last thing you want to focus on at this time but there is financial and moral help available, a friend recently lost her husband to cancer and the citizens advice were invaluable in helping to sort stuff out.Posted 2 weeks agomatt_outandaboutSubscriber
gnusmas this is awful news, and my heart goes out to you and the kids. I am not sure what I write will make much difference, but clearly stw and our little community means something to you, so I hope in some small way it will. Hugs and offers of help are here if you need.
Kids are resilient, and they will have you and great memories of her to cherish.Posted 2 weeks agozippykonaSubscriber
Not sure if it still works. I don’t think Junkyard is on here anymore.Posted 2 weeks agoTiRedMember
So very sorry G. Nothing prepares you for the finality, even when you know it’s coming. Kids are very resilient. You will learn a lot from them.
Go out in the sunshine somewhere nice with your kids when they finish school. I still remember the lovely sunny morning standing in the park the day my sister died, after being up all night with her.
Accept offers of practical help.Posted 2 weeks agoswdanMember
My condolences also. I’m not a particularly active poster on here but read a lot of the threads. I remember your last thread and what an amazing husband and dad you seemed. As someone else up there said, for that reason I know you’ll get through this. Take your time but don’t be afraid to talk about it, even to a load of strangers on the internet. The kids are important but so are you, look after yourself and make sure you’re able to be there when they need you (and vice versa). Love and hugs your wayPosted 2 weeks agojoshvegasMember
Gnusmas I’m really sorry to hear that.
I can only repeat what others have said. Stick around. Its always nice when you enter a conversation and you’ve shared and offered advice to others on here going through similar problem to yourself.
I have no practical advice to give but remember to take some time for yourself and ask if you need anything.Posted 2 weeks agognusmasSubscriber
Can’t see properly for tears, but thankyou for your kind words, they really mean a lot. Emotionally i am a complete and utter wreck, physically not much better. Have picked up our 14yo, he is in bits but giving him time, the other 3 kids are being dropped off at 5.30 tonight by a friend to give me some time.
The justgiving page junky started closed ages ago, but thankyou all for your offerings again. You have been more than generous making Mrs Gs remaining time a comfortable one and a nice one, enabling us to have family time together so we have decent memories and photos at least.
Some of you already have my email address, and that is the same email i use for PP and everything else. I personally won’t post it up here as i am not begging. Just needed to vent and inform you all after all your kindness before.Posted 2 weeks agoBigJohnSubscriber
So sorry Gnusmas. I’ve been reading your posts for the last year with increasing sadness.
All I can say is that you’re among friends here. And as many others have said, make sure you put yourself and your own needs first from time to time. You’ve been a great dad and husband and will carry on being a great dad. You may not believe it but one day, before too long, you’ll be happy again.
And somebody hurry up and set up a Just Giving page. I’ve got £25 burning a hole in my wallet.Posted 2 weeks agoslowpuncheurMember
I’m so sorry for your loss. I’ve followed your last thread and can’t begin to understand how you must be feeling. It sounds like you’re a hell of a dad to those kids.I can only echo what others have said: accept help whenever you can, take time to look after yourself and trust yourself. Sincere condolences.Posted 2 weeks ago
