Losing a friend or a family member is tough.
Your heart feels beaten and broken and it’s impossible to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
It’s a heartbreak with you’ll carry with you for the rest of your life.
But thankfully, it’s a pain many learn to live with.
Some grieving people share how a robin proved their loved ones were still with them, even after death.
“I felt an immense sense of calm”
Stacey Woodhouse said:
“The day after my Mum’s funeral, my husband and I decided to still go on a weekend camping trip that had been arranged before her passing.
“A robin flew around us, landing in our picnic table. She then proceeded to hop into our awning and through into our camper van.
“She stayed there looking at us for a good few minutes while I chatted with her.
“I felt an immense sense of calm. My mum loved joining us for camping trips, even it was only for a few hours and a cuppa.”
“She put her hand over her mouth and pointed”
Sylvia Rafter said:
“My Mam passed in June. I was driving home to get clothes when my neighbour was driving towards me.
“We both stopped and I broke down telling her about Mam. She put her hand over her mouth and pointed and there, on my car mirror, was perched a robin… even with the engine running.”
