Loss of a friend

Sadly this morning we learnt that a neighbour and close friend passed away during the night.
It was a shock as the illness was quite recent and he had kept the bad news between him and his partner.

    I'm very sorry for your loss @woodbine. That must have been a shock. Are you and senior management doing okay? How is their partner coping?

    @j@janer1967 sorry to hear that, 49 is no age for a major heart attack.

    @woodbine I'm really sorry to hear about the loss of your friend.  It sounds like quite a shock and I hope you and senior management are doing ok  <3

    Also @janer1967 blimey that is so young to have a heart attack.  I can understand it being upsetting, especially as you have a son together.  Is Toby coping okay with it?  Fingers crossed for a quick and smooth recovery for his dad.

    I am so sorry @woodbine. A loss is always a shock but when that loss is so unexpected it hits so hard. Having lost someone very dear suddenly in an accident I remember well that complete disbelief. Go gently on yourself, and give yourself time to grieve them. Too much emphasis is put on moving forward when to start with a time is needed to grieve. Take care

    @Cher_Scope thanks toby is coping well he just takes things like this with a pinch if salt , he is concerned obviously and desperate to see his dad but he knows he can't due to visiting restrictions 

    His dad won't be able to drive for 6 weeks either to be will  able to pick him up but I've told him I will pay for a taxi for him to go see him once he home and rested
