Hello I hope I am allowed to do this Im Bob of Roths nephew. My Uncle Bob sadly passed away recently. As a family we are devastated and had n idea he was in such a bad way until it was too late. Towards the end he spoke to me about his problems and told us about you incredible people and all the support you gave him. Our family will always be more greatful than we could ever put into words for what you all did for him and so while we are sorting my uncle Bobs affairs out I thought I would take the chance to say thank you from myself and the whole family. Id also like to say to anyone who is suffering mental health problems and is dreading this new lock down please GET HELP. Talk to someone anyone and dont let it ruin your life. Please dont end up like my uncle. He was a sound bloke and im missing him a lot. Please talk to someone and get the help you need.

Thank you Sheffield Forum and the special people who tried to help him

Stay strong everyone

Our love to you all

Jay

That is so sad Jay,   I've followed Bobs progress on the Forum, and wished him luck.

Devastated to hear this news.

I'm so sorry, Jay.  That's very sad news.  Bob was a great guy, with a good heart, and I was hoping we might have been able to actually meet some day.  I'm shocked and gutted.  I got the impression from his posts that he'd got a few other options which he was accessing for support but he obviously needed more.  

 

It's not really sunk in yet.

 

I'm very grateful to you for letting us know.

 

Please accept my condolences and please pass them on to your family.

 

God Bless Bob and keep him.

I forgot to say I will be donating my Uncles computer to charity and so this is the last time his account will be used. Is there a way to close his account or is it just left as it is?

Thinking of Bob at the moment, and also of the many others who might be struggling in the run up to Christmas time.

 

This year it's going to be very different for a lot of us.  For some, that may lessen the pressure and potential family tensions but I suspect, sadly, there will be more people than ever feeling isolated, lonely and anxious this Christmas.  

 

Please remember that help is always at hand.  There has been several numbers and organisations posted in this thread.  Your GP surgery, also, should be aware of how you are feeling, and always get back in touch with them if you feel that you're not getting the support you need.

 

Remember that however dark days might seem now, that this is only a temporary state of mind and you will experience a time, soon, when you will feel better and find it much easier to cope.  Try to do some of the things you used to enjoy before you started feeling this way.  There's a lot more people out there than you think who care for you, are waiting to help you, and are rooting for you.

Merry Christmas everyone, however you may celebrate it this year.  It's going to be very different and very difficult for some.

 

I'll raise a glass in memory of Bob, and think of the many people facing difficult times.

 

Remember, please, if you're feeling unable to cope, please get in touch with one or more of the local and national organisations mentioned subsequently in this thread.

 

Stay safe and warm.xxx
