I have posted on here once before about how to support my friend who sadly lost their boy earlier this year.
A few months more have passed now but I know they are already struggling and will continue to do so over the coming weeks and into the New Year.
If you don’t mind me doing so I wondered if I could ask those of you who wouldn’t mind sharing what has helped from your friends at this time over the years. I am sure nothing really “helps” but is there anything that perhaps shows support and that you are being thought of?
Is there anything to avoid e.g a card (not a Christmas card but just a blank card to write some messages of support) is that just not helpful? I would like to get the family a gift - nothing Christmassy just some items of comfort perhaps - but I really don’t want to do anything that would cause any unnecessary upset.
Thank you so much for any thoughts.
