am companioning someone who has suffered a loss...
You have expressed your sympathy to your friend, or loved
one, on their loss. "I'm sorry" seems to not be
enough...what do you do now? In working with the bereaved,
many describe their interaction with friends as feeling like
"there is an elephant in the room." Everyone knows
it's there, but they avoid the subject. Where from
here...how do you help?
How to Help offers to you some
practical suggestions on how to help your friend or loved
one along the journey of healing.
Often grievers are comforted by a note of encouragement each
day. Encourage them to sign up for daily email messages
www.griefshare.org . Daily email messages of inspiration
and encouragement will arrive at their inbox each day. There
is no cost for this service. You will find many thoughts and
words that will help you make it through each difficult day.
Stay involved with their lives. Listen...listen... and
listen again. Don't judge...or fix. Just listen. You can
make a difference, and they will love you for it. God Bless
you for your care of those who mourn...
