Death is an awkward topic. As an adult you either have experienced a loss or not. I was never comfortable speaking to someone who just experienced a loss because I always felt that I would make matters worse by saying the wrong thing to the person. I have been very fortunate because it has been over twenty-five years since I have had anyone close to me die. The reason I am writing about this today is because I have just experienced three deaths in a short period of time (a good friend, my Aunt who I spent summers with, and my mother-in-law) and am now comfortable consoling someone with a loss.
Plain and simple of what to do if you are uncomfortable with the subject. Just simply speak what you are feeling to the person. Don’t worry about what to say to the person to help them feel better. Just say what you are feeling. Because truth be told, the person just wants to know you care about them. Plain and simple!
I will always love them and miss them during different times of the day (Kenny, Aunt Ruth, and Mary), but after taking a few weeks off I am now ready to get back to talking (blogging) to you.
Wishing you blessings and happiness!
