Our son died 6 years ago, and we always try to mark his dates, milestones etc.... we have when on to have another 2 boys, who are now asking about there brother, which is really nice......

In fact our eldest boy (here) is starting school this year, and he was proudly telling the lady in the school uniform shop that he was starting primary school, and needing some jumpers and a school bag, and when she was taking his mesureaments, she said "do you have any brothers at school" and he was like " i have a baby brother but he goes to school in heaven, cause he died cause he had a sore heart and the doctors couldn't fix him" the poor women, had tears in her eyes and my wee boy said "lady why are you crying?"  

i didn't know where to look.....

We are so sorry that your baby has died.

 

Memory BoxIt may feel very hard to take in the reality of what has happened and to have any thoughts of what to do next. However, many parents have told us how important the memories of the short time they have with their baby are and that they have found it comforting to have reminders that they can look at and hold.

This ‘Always Loved, Never Forgotten’ memory box is given by Glasgow Sands as a way to create some memories which you can cherish.
