Life goes on, but it’s so bloody hard

My husband was 46 and died suddenly.  We thought he had the flu, took him to doctors Thursday and she thought the same.

We then found out he had leukaemia, his kidneys were failing and thenon Saturday he suffered a cardiac arrest and was gone.  My whole world fell apart at 5,59pm 21st July.  We have 2 children 8 & 11 and the heartbreak of telling them their daddy is in heaven was incredibly…See More

My husband Scott aged 46 died suddenly due to an illness we didn’t know he had. He left behind 2 children makaila aged 11 and Adam aged 8. He was also a great stepfather to my 3 sons from a previous marriAge. None of the kids got to say goodbye and I am at a lost as to how I’m meant to go on without my rock.
