My Friend Lost Her Spouse

Recommended Posts


Last week one of my dear friends lost her spouse. She is considerably older than me, but she has been such a blessing in my life. We don't get to see each other very much because I am currently in college. I came back to see her when I heard and was able to attend the funeral, but I want to continue to be there for her. Do you all have any suggestions? I don't want to be overwhelming or a burden, but I want to be supportive and show up. Should I visit her this week while I am off for Spring Break anyways or is it too soon? I come home most weekends too. I'm open to any suggestions.

Thanks so much

I'm so sorry to learn of the death of your friend's spouse ~ and what a good friend you are for seeking input on how you can best support her in her grief.

In addition to the helpful suggestions I know you will receive from some of our members, I invite you to read the following: Helping Another in Grief
