I know that he is a celebrity with a massive financial fortune, but he would have traded everything if it would have altered the tragedy. I do hope no saddo makes  references to this during bad auditions.

My wife and I lost a little baby during the run up to Christmas 1994 - it still hurts.

I feel for them both.

Our deepest sympathy to you and your wife, we lost our son, Matthew, in 1988 and he was stillborn.  It is something that no-one should have to endure. The pain you feel today is great, but hopefully with time it will ease. You will never forget your daughter Poppy, you will always wonder what she would have been like had she lived, I know we do every day about our son.  Our heartfelt sympathy to you both from us, Viv & Jeff Hoey, Redditch.
