All funds raised this year will again go to The Compassionate Friends (TCF), a wonderful organisation that supports parents who are going through the ordeal of having lost a child. All bereaved parents themselves, members of TCF offer sympathy, friendship, advice and hope to mothers and fathers who are facing the daunting task of trying to live on without their darling son or daughter. They do a great job with very limited resources. I have found them a real lifeline in this incredibly difficult journey.
Joe was a fantastic boy. He was the sensible one in the Cronin household, and while he was quiet, gentle, clever and sensitive, he was also funny and loving, and a joy to be around. Our oldest son, he was adored by his mum and dad and his two younger brothers. We are lost without him.
