heart felt sympathies to M's family and friends.
A hard reminder that statistic suggest that there WILL be approx 650 children this year who WILL lose their short lives to drowning, many of these victims drowning in full sight of adults who don't realize the peril the child is in.

hard time of year so many anniversaries, birthdays and new families joining the grief and devastation. There have been four kids this week, two drowned over a month or more ago they lost their battles this week too. Its tragic.
Breaks me everytime but there is hope for these families that they will find a smile in the future, takes time and support. xx
here for support mumzy i know the inquest wasnt comforting either and I am supportive of your loss of your cousin, trust me she is not far from my thoughts, i still think about her and what could have been done to prevent it. Happy to talk and help through these tough times of dates and xmas. Its sucks but you are not alone. xxxx
