On 30th October 2021 ‘Gone Too Soon’ held its first Memorial Service for Parents and their families who had lost a Son or Daughter.

It was a lovely sunny day and we gathered at Bowers Gifford Crematorium for a very special and emotional service to remember our children and talk to other Parents who had walked the same path.

Pebbles were laid with all our children’s names and 22 beautiful white doves were released at the end of the service. It is hoped that in the future this will be an annual event held at the Crematorium


Summer Garden Party and afternoon tea was recently held at the home of Lyn to bring together parents and siblings of Gone Too Soon.

The event was attended by 30 people together with Trudy Westmore-Cox, the founder of St. Luke’s hospice in Basildon.

A raffle was held which was supported by local businesses and raised £300 which was donated to the hospice.
