We went this afternoon to say goodbye to Nicholas before he goes to the undertaker. My husband, daughter and granddaughter came with us and we met Lauren and Amanda at the hospital.
We know now that Nicholas knew nothing of what happened it was so quick in his sleep. He had a massive double haemorrhage.  I am glad he did not suffer. He looked so peaceful. I am now able to accept that I will never see him again. It is hard, but thats the way it will be.

Thank you all for your messages, they mean so much to us. We now have to face the funeral after Christmas.


  1. So sorry, but I hope there's some comfort in knowing that he didn't suffer. Best wishes.

  2. Oh Anne I am so sorry, Nicholas was too young to leave you in this way, it's so unfair - you and Edwin must feel broken at the moment - take care, my thoughts and prayers are with you, Hugs xxx

  3. Such a hard time for you all - but as you say, it is good that it was quick and Nicholas would not have suffered. May God grant you his peace, and surround you with loving and supportive friends as you go through these dark days. You remain in our thoughts and prayers xx

  4. You will always have Nicholas in your heart. With love to you at this awful time. X

  5. Sweet friend, I hope it is of some comfort you and your family that Nicholas slipped away without pain or distress and that he looked so peaceful as you bid him good-bye.

    May the love of family and friends, good memories, funny family stories, and the peace of knowing his life was well lived sustain you all as you get used to his absence.

    Grace and peace be with you.

  6. You gave your son a beautiful name Nicholas. I am so glad that he looked so peaceful and that you were able to tell him goodbye.

    May God grant you and your family his peace.
