I miss my son


Posted by Stephen roe on 26 February 2012

I lost my son William Lloyd Roe 9 years ago. It's still as tough though, this anniversary (Feb 14th) was harder than ever. I have just split from his mum, my partner of 25 years - we didn't really deal with the affect it had I don't think.
I've just set up a new business - in memory of my son and I hope to look back and smile soon, but not yet.
We all deal with this dreadful disease in our own way because we're all different. To anyone that needs help, grab it, it's out there in many different forms. Blokes especially, there's nothing to be ashamed of in finding it hard going.
