Losing someone we love suddenly is devastating. Not only is it incredibly sad, but there is also the added impact of shock to consider. How ever you react, remember it is normal and understandable given the devastating news you received. Many often feel isolated, bewildered and traumatised, and need support to cope with the situation.
What we do know is that a sudden loss tears families apart, possibly leaving children without a mum, dad or sibling, parents without a child or individuals without a partner. There is no time to prepare or say goodbye. Life is changed forever.
