I found this video posted on a widows board. It makes alot of sense. Lets be more aware of those in grief.

Here is a link that might be useful: speaking to others in grief

After my brother's death, I received plenty of sympathy cards. Many had this line "If I can do anything, let me know." Well, I could use a couple thousand for a nice vacation to somewhere warm (I'm in New York). Not to put down my dear friends, but there's nothing I can think of that anyone can do. Include me in your plans.

You're exactly right, jannie. Include me in your plans!

The friends I thought I had turned out to be HIS friends. Haven't heard from any of them in months. My brother and SIL have been having some family troubles of their own, but I don't hear from them either. Work friends are younger, and casual acquaintances are just that.

I don't really believe I'm alone, but it sure feels like it!
