Who has been the most sympathetic to you in your time of grief?

What is the nicest thing someone has done in your time of mourning?

My DH. He really just let me do what I needed to do and hugged me when I needed it.

People came over to talk and just let me tell them my memories of my dad...the good and the bad ones.

I don't know, I don't really talk about it with anyone. Just not a comfortable subject for anyone.

My cousin gave me Stephanies bracelet she was wearing when she died. That meant alot to me. I cant wear it though because its so fragile it kept breaking and I had to keep getting it repaired, I'm afraid I'd ruin it.

My mom, having lost an infant and had a miscarriage, she really understood.

My first mother's day I was having a really hard time so my mom went out and got me some earrings. The next year we all went out for dinner and the restaurant was giving free desserts. Mom made sure I got one.

My best friend. She lives far away but has been a great source of comfort and understanding.

Surprisingly my dad sent the sweetest card when my grandmother died. It was unexpected and very nice. Losing my grandmother in Dec was harder than I could have imagined.

I would say that friends were the most supportive. My family all was really just in shock.

My friends all got together the day before Gracie's funeral mass and baked the entire day; they supplied all the baking and some food for the reception afterwards. They also all pulled together and started a scrapbook for me.
Many friends sent me daily messages on facebook or the phone to check in on me and ask if I needed anything.
