When You Don't Know What To Say
For those who have a friend that has been devastated by the loss of a loved one. When others care enough to rub shoulders with grieving friends and are willing to be inconvenienced. It requires someone to care enought to put aside cliché condolences and stick close through a long grieving process.
An individual's grief can never be "fixed". But friends can wash a sink full of dishes. One can listen. Or they can go along on a cemetery visit. Sharing another's grief is not about "fixing it"--it's about showing up.
Harold Ivan Smith, popular speaker and grief educator, guides others to respong with their heart. He shows tangible, meaningful ways to make a significant difference as one journeys through grief with someone they care about.
