Take That member and The X Factor judge Gary Barlow and his family are suffering one of life's most difficult tragedies; Gary's wife Dawn delivered their baby girl, Poppy, on August 4th and she was stillborn. Devastated, Gary Barlow asked for privacy while he and his family plan Poppy's funeral.
One Direction's Harry Styles reached out to Gary to offer his condolences. Harry tweeted, "My Love, thoughts and prayers are with <s>@</s>GBarlowOfficial and his family at such a difficult time... xx"
Harry Styles has met the X Factor judge several times. Unless one has experienced the tragedy of a stillborn child themselves, it is impossible to imagine the enormous pain that Gary Barlow and Dawn must be suffering. This news is heartbreaking.
In honor of Poppy Barlow's memory, a special page has been set up by Gary's fans for anyone who would like to donate to Sands, the stillborn and neonatal death charity. Visit JustGiving.com/RIPPoppyBarlow for details.
