Is it the right thing to do?

Is it the right thing to do if I send a condolence card to someone after they've lost a loved one whom I was very close to at one time for a long time but because of different things (on both of our parts) are not even friends anymore? I'm looking at as a way of putting the past in the past even if we don't become friends again, I want her to know that I still care :( err

  • It seems like it could be a good way to mend some bridges and you too knew the person so the feelings are sincere.

  • Thank you all, I am going to send her and her family a card. I'm not sure I knew the family member they're missing right now, I was closer to my former friend and her husband and all 5 of our kids (5 between us) got to school together and also played sports together. But how do I prepare myself if I run into her in public and she says nothing or doesn't even acknowledge?

  • I think it's a wonderful idea, and if you run into her, and she says nothing, then I'd just let it go. You extended the olive branch, and it's up to her to accept or not.
