So, last December my best friend's brother commit suicide. He was only only 24.
While it's been a really hard year for them all- with the holiday's coming up it's really hitting them hard- not to mention the 1st anniversary of his death. I have gotten several calls with my friend crying, and I just don't know what to say. I have been there for her and lent a shoulder to cry on every step of the way, and I just wish there was something I could say or do to help. I know I can't take the pain away- but something to ease it- or let her know that I still think about Justin and miss him too- he was like a brother I never had.
Have any of you been in this position before? Any advice? I would love to do something for her and her mom and dad- but I just don't know what.
Okay... I can't see the screen now... so I guess that's all....
There were a few friends involved so we got the ultimate package. I know there are other places also that do this. To me, I am so thankful my friends did this. We have their certificates hanging in our living room and I can see them everyday and whenever I go out at night I stare at the sky night knowing they are smiling down at me.
Also, if money is an issue you can buy a stuffed animal that is part of this sight, they are pretty inexpensive, $10 - $20. I found some at a local Hallmark store.
Saying things to a family in need is difficult. I know when friends are there just to listen to me rant and rave is enough. I don't expect anything to be said in return, just to know there is someone's shoulder there to cry is enough.
