I have a friend who has 7 sisters, born during the 1950's.
Her mother also several miscarriages and lost 2 sets of twins at birth.
This wonderfully positive and happy lady nonetheless always said that not a day went by without her thinking, not only of her children who had survived, but also those whom she had lost.

My Mum is now 93 and still grieves the loss of my still born little Sister in 1948, she still had the burial receipt. Also the loss of her eldest Son (my Brother) who died in 1998 age 60, also her eldest Daughter who died in 2007 age 65. All so sad.
