    Mel, I think of you each and every day. I cannot even begin to imagine how you must be feeling and I often wish there was some way I could bring you some comfort. Eilish may be gone, but she will forever live in the hearts of many. You will continue to be in my prayers.

    Thankyou all so much for your kind, caring and supportive messages, and thankyou to Alison for posting this :cwds:
    Knowing that your thoughts are with us is really such a comfort. I think the people in this community feel this grief for us more than the average person, and you all feel like family to me.

    I was warned by my counsellor that the 3 month mark is particularly hard on most people, and she wasn't wrong. It's been a hellish nightmare, and really the only thing that has changed for me, is that I'm better at putting on the 'face' when people are around. But it's always a facade, because inside, all I feel is a completely broken heart.
    I realised VERY early on, that a lot of people expect you to go on as normal. Hold conversations, and 'chat' even :rolleyes:

    My day revolves around trying to get Ella through her day (and night..as she's still very frightened of being alone) and trying to keep her busy. I really don't have much time to deal with my own grief (Ella has been on holiday for the last almost 6 weeks, and that was very bad timing in a way) Every hour feels so long now that she is an only child :(
    Charlie is also struggling hugely.. We would all trade anything in the world to have our precious and beautiful Eilish back :(

    But your messages are SO appreciated..thankyou all :)

    <3

    Mel and Charlie...I think of your family almost every single day. I read your postings on FB and grieve/laugh/remember with you. Please know you are loved and your daughter will always be remembered in our home.
