Tragic Coincidence

by My Christopher

I am in shock, this is unbelievable, and an amazing coincidence.
My son also named Christopher died on 12.05.2011 age 21 by a pulmonary embolism.
My Chris was also involved heavily in IT, and worked as a graphic artist.
Could someone else be going through the exact same tragedy, could that be possible?
We miss our boy more than words can express.
The pain is never ending, our world will never be the same without him.
The cause of Christopher's death is even more painful, because it could so easily have been avoided.
In the midst of your pain, you have found the courage to help others, and you must be commended.
You are onto something unbelievably important. You are right, DVT is on the rise and
people should be educated of the consequences.

I wish you every success, I am looking forward to seeing your new website creation.
Please keep us posted.

I was just re-reading some of the messages posted on this site and I came across yours. I remember reading it just after my Chris passed and I wondered how you are doing. It was such an amazing coincidence our 2 boys going together. I hope they have met up wherever - I would imagine they would have a lot in common.

If you want to, you can contact me on If you don't I will completely understand - I know grief is such a personal thing and you might not be ready yet - but if you do, then it might help us both.
