Support for a Mother of a Murder Victim


Recommended Posts

I'm so sorry for your loss, and I appreciate your concern about how best to support your friend's mother when you're also mourning this death.

Your question reminds me of another young man who found himself in a similar situation, uncertain about contacting the mother of his dear friend who was killed. You may find this article helpful: In Grief: Mourning The Loss of a Friend

In addition, you'll find a number of helpful suggestions here: In Grief: "Being There" for Someone in Mourning and here: Surviving A Partner's Homicide  ♥️

Definitely be there for your friend.  I can't think of a worse way to lose someone than murder or suicide, very very hard.  I lost my husband to a sudden heart attack and all my friends disappeared on me, it would have been helpful to have a true friend during that time, someone like you, that cares.  You are doing your friend a great service.  I know it's hard for you too and I'm sorry for your loss.
