Just Be There.
That’s it, that is all there is to it folks.
Don’t just be there when the initial shock of sudden death hits. Be there in the days, weeks, months and years after the funeral.
This might mean holding her hand as she cries, handing her one tissue after another, letting her cry on your shoulder, a phone call to see how she is doing, a thinking of you card in the mail, or even an email.
She does not expect you to have the answer to the tough questions such as “Why?” She knows that only God knows why. She might still ask it, but knows you are unable to answer it. Just let her vent.
Take a little time out of your day once a week or every other week to contact her somehow and let her know you are thinking about her and are still for her.
After all, you would want the same support if the roles were reversed.
