Anniversaries and walking for @CRY_UK
The latest in CRY’s series of booklets* on coping with the unexpected loss of a young person is about anniversaries.
It examines how people try to manage what can be a difficult day or time, best summed up by Alison Cox, CRY’s founder, who writes that anniversaries ‘become a focal point, offering precious time to reflect on cherished moments plucked from their brief lives spent together. Moments that are needed to serve a lifetime.’
We have anniversaries for Tom and, of course, for Claire too.
We also have a day, hopefully a bright, sunny summer’s day, that remains equally important to us; the CRY London Bridges Walk. Over the years it’s become probably the largest single gathering of friends who want to remember Tom and Claire. It is also, of course, a day in which the message is far larger than any single individual or family, highlighting as it does the shocking loss of young lives every year to illnesses which are, in the main, treatable.
If you can join us again this year, on June 26, we would love to see you. Details are here.
See you on the day!
*The other titles in the series are: A Sibling’s Grief; A Partner’s Grief; A Father’s Grief; A Mother’s Grief; Christmas. Details of all the booklets are here.
