    Dear Greg,

    What a timely post considering this is the anniversary of my sister’s suicide. I knew you, of all people, would not forget this date and how it affected our family 13 years ago. Thank you for thinking of us and being there for us during that time when I felt as if I could not breathe and did not know how I would get through the next minute. Thank you for standing true to this very day with your support. You are so right. When people don’t know what to say, then say nothing but DO something … it doesn’t take much to help and “be there” on tender days such as today.

    Thank you again, my ever faithful and devoted friend.

    I love you,

    Shirley

    This is great advice. I’m that person who awkwardly avoids peoples eyes when they tell me something “uncomfortable”. It’s not that I don’t care – it’s just I never know what to say! But doing something is great advice.

      Madaline,

      Thanks for the reply. I am the same way. Much of the time I don’t what to say. Sometimes I will send a card letting them know I am thinking of them or to just say that I am there for them if they need anything. I think doing something like that is better than feeling the need to fumble through saying something that will make you and them feel uncomfortable.

      Greg
