Losing a child is never easy. Two young parents lost their son, Noah, very recently and their festive season will be a lot less jolly. As a form of mourning, the father shared his pain on social media, and tweeps were heartbroken for him.
Twitter user @justbkay took to his social media account to share his pain on losing his baby boy, perhaps as a way to deal with his loss.
While he does not say how his son, Noah, passed away, he did say that burying him was the hardest thing he ever had to do.
South Africans who read about @justbkay and the mother of baby Noah's loss, were heartbroken but also eager to wish them the best.
South Africans also shared advice and words of encouragement, hoping to give the mourning parents a little relief.
