for a griever.
There is nothing wrong with memorializing a death with flowers or sending a sympathy card in remembrance of the dead. Heartfelt wonders what can we do for the people who are here with us now; our friends or loved ones in a state of struggle, in a state of grief.
A Heartfelt Sympathy is a package of essentials to help a person cope with the death of someone very close. A helpful connection between you and them throughout one of the hardest times in their life. You are there for them.
When my husband Steve died, I moved from being on this planet to a realm between life and death. I was far away but right here.
People in my community no longer felt comfortable talking to me or being around my sadness - they wanted to fix me. But grief is not fixable. Don't let this stop you from giving support.
Everyone deals with grief in their own distinct way. However, through my own grief experience, I found there were some things that could be universally helpful. The items in a Heartfelt Sympathy are not intended for memorialization; these items are for people still here. Grievers.
When you witness, acknowledge, and validate a person's grief, you have helped in unforeseen ways. As there is so much sorrow in the mind of a griever, you may not get a 'thank you,' so let me thank you right now.
Thank you. The fact that you are looking to provide support means a lot. Keep going.
