I know that there is nothing we can do or say to ease the pain. But I know that this person will be solely focused on everyone else right now. Of course, and I am almost certain the support and funding needed to say their goodbyes is already being dealt with. She will be in a whirlwind of grief. Lost in a sea of agony. Even as I write this, I feel like I shouldn't be because I cannot even comprehend the pain. To not only loose a child (her nephew) so tragically in a house fire, then her sister, who could not bare the pain of her loss. She must be beyond devastated. There is more tragedy to this story but it is not my story to tell. I am sure the Newspapers, social media have covered it enough.
But I feel like we need to do something that is just for her and her family. I know that right now, this will be so far from her radar, not something that they can begin to think about. But if we start now, in six maybe twelve months time there we be enough money raised for her little family to get away, to escape and look into the future.
If each of my Facebook friends alone, gave £1. We have made an amazing start.
I haven't named my friend on here because I don't want her to know about this for the next few weeks but anyone local will know who I am referring to. I have named the crowdfunding link after her daughter, who shouldn't have to deal with all of this pain and grief at such a tiny age.
