Providing Comfort in a Time of Grief

The loss of a loved one can be devastating to family and friends. In the days leading up to the funeral services near Detroit, your bereaved friend or family member may experience a profound sense of loss and confusion. For tips that will help you provide comfort to your friend or family member, watch this video clip.

First, let your friend or family member grieve in his or her own way without passing judgment. It's quite normal for the bereaved to behave strangely or erratically leading up to the funeral or in the weeks and months after it. Offer genuine sympathy for your friend or family member without pretending to know how he or she feels. Do not give advice at this time. You may want to suggest going for a walk. Welcome opportunities to vent if your friend or family member wants to.
