Just let me know…

Give me a call…

Keep me informed…

When you are in grief you can hardly put one foot in front of the other.

Although, well-meaning telling the grief-stricken to “Just let me know if you need anything” or “Give me a call and keep me informed”  is probably not going to happen.

Better just to go ahead and give them that call before they ask. Don’t make them track you down with information, you track them down.

Don’t make excuses, be there when you can and don’t make promises you cannot keep.

Help before asked. Seek ways out to help, but don’t expect the grief-stricken to ask , it is hard enough to make it through day without tracking people down.

Send a card, make the call, come over and put your arm around them, no one would resent this. Don’t assume somebody else will do it.
