What’s Your Grief’s E-Guide to Supporting a Griever
After a loved one dies, there’s nothing anyone can say to take away a griever’s pain. Despite the reality that there’s very little value in summing up the situation with a positive or inspiring platitude, supportive friends and family commonly focus on saying the right thing. When, in actuality, providing comfort through words isn’t nearly as helpful as giving support.

- The Grief Experience: What to Expect
