Helping a friend with death of a child
I just got an email from a friend that her 7 year old daughter died from a brain hemorrage (sp?). It was totally unexpected. My heart is just breaking for her and her family (she also has a 4 year old son). I would appreciate any suggestions on how to help her and her family. She lives overseas in Asia so I can't visit her. I sent an email response to her but the words of sympathy seemed so empty and trite. I know I can't take the pain away but I would like to help ease it if I can. Any suggestions on what could help? I understand grief is personal and individual. Thanks.
