Words of Loss

On this page you will find words of loss written by myself or others. I have found comfort in reading other peoples words in helping my journey of grief.  . Others thoughts and feelings have helped me to realise that I am not alone in how I feel. At times I have spent hours scrolling through Pinterest just reading others thoughts. I share my words of loss and other support on my Facebook page and Instagram. Thank you. Sara x

Angel Mummy Quote: All you can do is take each day as it comes. Some days it will be hour by hour and on those really tough days it will be minute by minute.
