"This just reminded me of the time when we buried my friend's son (infant), I have never felt so traumatised in my life, this is the most painful a parent has to go through, I pray that you find healing my brother."
"We buried my aunt’s two-month-old baby last month and it was one of the most confusing things I ever experienced. It’s so heartbreaking to see that."
"Was about to participate then this shattered my heart into little shredded pieces, I'm even crying typing this. Strength and power to you mate, I'm so sorry."
"This takes me back, last year January 28 when I lost my unborn baby. To this day I ask myself questions, but with no answers... Death be not proud that you take our angels away from us. Thanks to God me and my wife are still together and trying to support each other."
"The pain doesn't go away. Lost my father Jan last year, lost my unborn in March. I still have unanswered questions till this day. Still cry when I see someone preggies or a child born."
