Joan Lawrence has revealed that the two women have formed a friendship borne out of the shared pain of not knowing what has happened to their daughters.

I am not quite sure that this is totally accurate. I think one of them knows full well what happened to her daughter. Just look at the picture of Kate coming out of church 8 days later, and then talk about shared pain.

Hello Garfy and welcome from one Yorkshire lass to another
I agree with your post and the last bit about written by mothers united in grief and that some things aught to be kept private is for me the "oh look at us, grief stricken" Now I am not saying for one moment that Claudias Mum isn't worried to death about her daughter and is suffering grief at her loss but Kate McCann, no way.
I don't mean tears, it is reported that they were shed in private.
Anyone who has ever experienced grief will know that there are many shed in private but also that grief washes over you at any time, and though we don't actually sob in an uncontrolled manner the eyes well up with tears and the person is overcome for moments.
Now I have never ever seen this with Kate McCann. I have heard her pretendy voice and I have seen her scared but never any grief.
All my opinion of course, but as an oldster I have grieved many times and seen grief in others.
Anyway hello, this forum is a good place and I hope that you find areas where you can join in with us.

This is the heartbreaking moment when the parents of murdered schoolboy Jimmy Mizen were met and comforted by Kate McCann at a service held in memory of young victims of knife and gun crime.
McCann, who of course is still tormented by her own loss - the disappearance of her daughter three years ago - shared a sympathetic hug with Barry and Margaret Mizen on the steps of Westminster Cathedral.
Mrs McCann wept as Mrs Mizen described her last minutes with Jimmy and how she had always told him she loved him.
She was personally invited by Mrs Mizen because ‘they were both mothers who had lost their children'.
