Tips for Supporting a Grieving Friend
When a friend is grieving the loss of a loved one, knowing how to support him or her is not always easy. One thing you can do is to make sure you’re available long after the funeral and cemetery services have ended, when people are often left to face their loss alone.
Watch this video for advice on how you can be there for a grieving friend. Practical support with making arrangements with the cemetery or helping to plan a gravestone memorial can help, but sometimes, simply acknowledging the loss and listening is the best support you can give.
