Ignoring the bereaved

So pleased to see the ‘Loose Women’ team discussing bereavement and echoing my own thoughts on how ignoring/avoiding the recently bereaved is unhelpful beyond words.

We all know there are no words but in denying that somebody is bereft makes their journey even sadder. We all feel alone in our grief but to know that friends care and not just for the first few weeks is of great comfort.

I know my own Mother said people would cross the road to avoid her after my Father died suddenly at a young age.
