|Grief is an expression of love
Earl A. Grollman
|What can you do for someone in
Give to them the gift of your
presence... words are not as important
as actions... it is not what you say but
hold a hand,
give a hug,
hang out with them,
send a note,
bring them a care package,
do a chore for them,
have a lunch date.
Be sensitive to holidays and birthdays,
keep in mind the 3-1-3-1 rule -- three
weeks, one month, three months, one

understanding, and wait.
