    Very sorry for your loss, I've been in the same position myself and know what you are going through.
    Hang in there champ and be strong for the kids.

    Sorry to hear that Stake.

    Your kids don’t need you to be a super hero mate. Grieve however you need.

    And you’ll wake each day with a purpose to be the best father you can be.

    Everyone that you so much for the kind words, and it helps, i cry when i read them, i know i have never met anyone in here, but in a way its like a brotherhood, somewhere where you can basically scream to help and in a way it is, at moment not up to talking.

    I am working on eulogy and trying to make sure it is fitting for my late wife, i know i wont get it perfect but i will ensure i do her proud, she will never grow old she was 43 i am grateful i had 12 years, to me that is better than 10 with anyone else, and now to make my kids proud, to bring them up, and remember mum, and take her values forward, thanks again Guys, i will be back i just need to get through some days which as some of you know test you like never before.

    I am so glad i was with here and held her taking her last breath i knew she had gone a to a place where there is no pain

    You are hanging tough brother.
    You will get there and we are better men for having these beautiful people in our lives. Partners and parents. Kids.
    We lose them and its a struggle to go on. But you will.

    And this is more than a bunch of boofheads debating the intricacies of the sharks. It is a support network. And we genuinely care.
    Its gutwrenching to feel your pain.
    Youre one of us.

    So sorry to hear Stakey. I’m sure your fam’ has been and will continue to be in all our thoughts. No words, but the only meaningful advice would be ‘one day at a time’. Remember your wife is still counting on you to be there for the kids, now more than ever. You got this, but don’t hold back to ask for help when you need it.

    Vale Laurie & deepest condolences to you mate.

    I'm sure you'll do your late wife proud with the eulogy. Just hang in there, hold your kids close and don't be afraid to ask for help from anyone, for anything.

    Take care.

    Hi stake
    I hope you are doing ok.

    Unfortunately I have a similar story to you.
    2 of my best mates ( brothers ) lost their beautiful sister suddenly last Sunday.
    Her husband has become one of us boys over the years.
    So I class him as a best mate too.
    They have 2 little kids, 4 and 6.
    Girl and boy.

    They only lost their dad last year.

    We all sit together at the footy.
    She lets me park in their driveway on game day as they only live up next to the golf course.

    it’s a nightmare.
    She was a legend.
    The best mum and her own mum was her best friend.
    Her mum actually lives with her, her husband and the kids.

    there was no warning
    She wasn’t sick
    She just passed away in her sleep.


    Not sure why I’m even putting this in here.
    No need for reply’s to me .
    I just wanted to let Stake know people do care.

    anyway everyone
    Tell your mates you love them every time you speak to them.
    Look after each other.
    Just be there to stop them falling.

    This must be an especially hard day for you Stake. I hope you’re doing well and your Sharks brothers are here for you.

    Life is short, but a favourite saying of mine is “it’s not the years in your life but it’s the life in your years.”

    Live it up while you can. That’s my philosophy. Glad to hear you’re feeling a little better mate.
