I am so overwhelmed with everyone's kindness.

William was the most amazing boy and incredible big brother. We are struggling so much with his loss especially his little brother Patrick. As if life couldn't get harder my sweet Patrick was diagnosed on Friday the 12th with type 1 diabetes, he has been in hospital for 4 days so far .

Our lives have changed so much and I am struggling with grief and Patrick is devastated and not coping, we have to get mental support and there is no way I can go back to work for some time. Live has changed so much for our family so all these wonderful donations are more than a godsend . Thank you so much.
