and then i got news that Bec and Lincoln had welcomed baby Matilda into the world at around 5.30pm yesterday afternoon.
So today is a day of sadness and celebration.
This morning we say a final goodbye to Sammy, with his grieving family and heartbroken mummy. That the world is empty without his smiling face is an understatement.
This afternoon we welcome Matilda, and go and meet her. A brand new baby in this scary, hurting world.
I'm already an emotional wreck, and the funeral doesn't start for a couple of hours yet.
What do you say to someone who's just lost their reason for living..
