It was a very sad day.

when we sat in the church there was a tape of my friends babies fave lullabies, then the order of service had the most gorgeous photo on.

I was suprised that the coffin didnt upset me as much as I expected (although were I was sitting it wasnt in veiw) it was seeing and hearing his Mum sob all the way through that was the worst, the Dad was holding their sons dummy.

The service was nice, as much as it could be if you know what I mean.

As they walked out Eric Claptons Tears In Heaven was played.

What really got to me was on walking out my friend walked right behind the coffin with her hand on it.

Really dont know how she managed it all.

life just stinks doesnt it.

Sorry to depress you all, I just feel like telling somebody about it.

Thanks again for all the support I receive on here

Annibear, that is just so, so sad I just don't know what to say. How do you get over the loss of a child? Your poor friend.

Your poor friend anniebear It's dreadful.

It's probably much too soon for her but there are some bereaved mums who post on Heartline message board if she needs to talk to a parent in the same situation.

Oh my God, that was such a hard post to read, as I knew it would be, jesus, can't imagine, I have to stop myslef from really thinking about it too hard, it's like a protective barrier that comes up everythime I start to picture them and how they are feeling. Dear God, those poor, poor people. And all the other poor people in the world that have gone, are going and will go through the same thing. It's unbearable.

It will mean so much to them for the rest of their lives that you were there to share their sorrow. And that they felt able to cry in your company. Hugs to you all anniebear

Thank you again to everyone

At the funeral I was with two friends who like me had so very nearly lost their little girls when they were babies. One turned and said "it could have so easily have been us couldnt it"

Really doesnt bare thinking about, cant imagine how anyone could carry on......but they do
