How to Help A Grieving Friend

Here is another excellent article from Megan Devine on how to help a grieving friend. It speaks for itself, and if you know someone who has recently lost a loved one, you can help in meaningful, concrete ways. You can’t fix anything, you can’t change anything, but you can stand by your friend, support them, and help them with the daily tasks that can be overwhelming to someone who is grieving.

About edcol52

The Infinite Fountain of Love and Loss flows unceasingly into the pool of memory and sorrow. I created this blog in response to the most dreadful tragedy every parent fears, the death of a child, our 24 year old son, Jake. We are now on an unimagined journey along this road of grief and recovery. If you can find some comfort within these pages, than I will have succeeded in some small measure.
