National Bereaved Parents Day 2021

Tracie's story

This is one of many ways we remember our precious son Richard who passed suddenly from a cardiac arrest aged 22 in 2012.

A wonderful friend, who lost her 18 year old daughter in the same way only a month later made this for us. Richard’s favourite colour was orange so we always have to hand orange paper. We write funny or poignant or any memories that we have of him and people are always welcome to write something that may have come back to them that they had forgotten.

I read them every now and then and laugh and cry but it keeps memories of him safe.

Tracie, Richard's mum
