It's my DD3's 1st birthday today.

Then almost to the hour that she was born she walked halfway across the room, 4 times!


Yesterday afternoon my and DP's good friend took his life. Got the call first thing this morning.
He jumped in front of a train.
We're all devestated.
He only got married in April this year.
Just found out he was going to be a daddy.

The boys all saw him at his best mates stag on Saturday.
We were all going to the wedding / weekend away this Saturday.

He suffered from depression.

Now he's dead.

His poor family. His poor widow. Poor everyone involved.

Can't believe it's happened.

How devastating for your friend and his family. How tragic that such a serious illness was untreated.

How wonderful that you are healthy and happy with your babies, treasure the moments.

He was getting help. Or supposed to have been. He was taking himself off to the Priory.

He just couldn't take the severe highs and crashing lows anymore sad

How as his wife do you get over something like his?

He was 38.

So tragic.

That's terrible news. How sad. Are they postponing the wedding?
