    Frank,

    So sorry for your loss. It's really good to hear from you. We are listening. You are always welcome to speak and cry and tell us your hurt here. Grief is a multi-faceted thing. Please stay in touch and remember that despite your loss, there is another child in your life who needs you and who you need. Be there for each other if you can. We are here, if you need us.

    Deepest Sympathy,

    Annita

    You can write to Abby here Frank, we are all about open letters. We'd be honoured to have you write in her memory here.

    All the best,

    Annita
