GRIEF AND  OTHERS

My Friend Fred

Learning how to be a good friend to grieving people may be as simple as sitting with them when they are sad.

My friend Fred does this well. During the significant losses in my life, Fred shows up. He gives a great hug and then settles in for the sit. He tends to come early and stay late. Once I had to let him know it was okay to go home, because we needed to get to bed. He has few words, but his presence is always comforting.

I do not know what my next loss will be, but I know Fred will be there to sit with me in those early days of sadness.  That gives me great comfort.
