Hi all.
I lost my husband to cancer 2 and a half years ago, my little boy was only 22 months at the time.
He is now 4 and starting to greive, he keeps getting upset and asking me to get daddy back, why did he die, why has everyone else got daddys and i havn't, where has he gone?
As you can imagine this is very difficult, i was wondering if there is anybody who has been through a similar loss and could offer some advice please.

i don't have any advice but i've been struggling with a similar situation for a few days now. my brother died from cancer 2 1/2 years ago and now i have a 6 week old. i don't even know when or how to tell her about him. he was such a great person, even at 11 that i want her to know him so badly.

I'm so sorry for your loss and how badly your son is struggling. I hope someone can help you or you find it in you to help your son understand.

I lost my daughter at 28 days back in Decmeber 2005 and I also had a 15 month old at the time, to this day my daughter asks me when her sister is coming back. Its hard but I have to explain to her that her sissys in Heaven with Jesus, and she says that she wants to be there too. It is hard and it will take time for them to understand but just be patien and know that one day they will understand, hope that things are going good for you!
