    Hello. New here, wondering if anyone else is dealing with the loss of a sibling and is the only surviving child? I'm only 32. Look forward to hearing from others in this situation x

    Hi Beverly,

     

     I am sorry to hear about the loss of your brother, whether he was younger or older, or if the death was sudden or anticipated, grief is a natural response to losing someone you care about. There's no right or wrong way to grieve, and everyone experiences it differently. Many people find it helpful to talk to others, sharing your thoughts and feelings can be beneficial. Beverly, as well as reaching out to the community you may want to speak to us at the Information and Support Line Tel: 0800 090 2309.
