I also want to comment that she is handling it well. As long as she's alive, she's doing it right. It's her life, her grief. You are on the second tier and if you dump on her, she has more emotional burden.

It can take me days to answer an email. I forget simple things like ingredients for a meal. I don't know what day of the week it is most of the time. Someone with good intentions can still do harm especially when all of her energy is going to just staying afloat.

Leave her be. Honestly yes leave her alone. About THAT topic. Treat her as you normally would and respect her need for space. We don't have to talk about that topic to be supported and helped. I'm different. I talk about it all the time and others get sick of that, I'm sure. This is her way and it needs to be given space and time.
