Friends Who Have Suffered a Loss

If You are the Friend of Someone Who Has Suffered the Loss of a Loved One

  • Don’t be afraid to talk about the person who has died.
  • Keep the memory alive; talk about the deceased; don’t be afraid of your friend’s tears.
  • Be persistent in friendship; write cards, check-in,  do simple acts of kindness.
  • Do not compare losses.

“I am so sorry” are the kindest words.
