Demelza is offering journals to all bereaved families following feedback from Elizabeth, a bereaved parent, who kept a journal following the death of her son Wilber. “We lost our darling Wilber in December 2022 at Demelza. We stayed at Demelza for almost a week after Wilber passed. When we returned home, I started to jot down a few memories in a notebook."
"Our time at Demelza was one of hugely mixed emotions. Of course, it was the worst time of our life losing Wilber, but we also encountered the most amount of love that we have ever experienced. Writing about it has helped me hold onto that, to write about the good as well as the worst possible.”
- Elizabeth, Wilber’s Mum
