I'm so sorry for all you've been through, life just doesn't make sense sometimes...but it sounds like you have many wonderful memories of a precious wife to carry you through.

I'm so glad to hear your due-in group has been such a great support too, it's always nice to hear of people supporting others.

I have a blood disorder known as Anti-Phospholipid Syndrome which can cause clotting and pregnancy complications...so your wife's story touches my heart.

Thank you for sharing your story.

Bernie, I heard about your story through my good friend Claire, who was in your due in group.

I remember the utter devastation I felt for you then, to not only lose your beautiful wife, but the precious twins she was carrying too.

Your story is very touching. You have done Louise and your babies proud.

I wish you well for your future and thank you for sharing your story with us all.

Bernie, I am so sorry to hear about the tragic loss of your wonderful wife and your babies.

I can not even imagine what you are going through.

It's good to hear you have support through family, friends and counselling during this impossibly difficult time.

I hope you stay strong and that Louise's spirit and memory live on through this award.
