Advise for helping someone through grief.

Advise for helping someone through grief.


Even if you have never lost someone close to you, we all know how it feels to be in a very difficult time.  Words of encouragement can uplift a person’s spirits.   I have referred back to sympathy cards/messages as reminders to myself.   If you personally knew the person that passed, I would recommend adding a memory you have.   This also helps the person know that their loss is unique to their specific relationship.  Every loss is different and every relationship is different so every person will grieve differently.  When grieving memories are the only thing left.  Those thoughts/prayer and encouragement of strength and resilience through this difficult time are often the best thing you can offer.
