This book is to bring comfort and hope to all those who have lost a loved one. Written in memory of my beautiful boy, Bruce whom I lost to suicide. He had many aspects to his character, the ‘dark’ and the ‘light’ just like the weight of emptiness which now lies in my heart, dark and heavy, often too heavy to bear. When you lose a loved one you may or will find yourself sobbing uncontrollably but please take comfort and know that through resilience and courage you can endure each day. Remember your loved one is free from pain. The weight will become ‘lighter’. Focus on your loved one’s smile and wonderful memories. Always remember your loved ones. Do not let their lives be in vain. For my boy, the words adapted from Johnny Nash say it all: ‘I can see clearly now the rain has gone, all of the bad feelings have disappeared Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind, I think I can make it now the pain is gone Here’s the rainbow I’ve been praying for, look all around there’s nothing but blue skies It’s gonna be a bright, bright sunshiny day’
