I Have a Friend in Grief: How Can I Help ?

One of the mistakes we make is asking people in deep grief how we can help them.  They are often too lost in their own sorrow to identify needs.  It’s OK to ask; but just know you can step in and help.  For instance, if it’s after the funeral at a reception and the trash needs to be taken out – don’t ask, just help.  In the old days we would gather around the loved one and just do things for them.  Bring over some food so that they don’t have cook but can still eat well.  You probably know their life – offer to pick up the kids, help them with their yard, offer to take them on errands.  See the ten ways.
