My son Ian Broad had an accident 13 years ago he fell and hit his head while fooling about with his friends it left him with epilepsy and it was at times quite bad but he wanted his own space and so he got a flat just around the corner from my house he did very well he kept it clean and tidy cooked his own meals etc I phoned every morning to see if he was ok if he didnt answer I give him 10 minutes and phoned again, so on new year eves morning we were going food shopping I phoned him as usual and then a second time as he might have been in the shower yet still no answer so I walked around to his flat expecting to find him fitting, when I walked in I found him dead he has now been buried with his dad Jeff he died at the age of 38 with cancer I will miss Ian for the rest of my life .
