A wonderful person I know lost her husband last night. I just received the message about his death this morning. I gave my condolences and offered my support but I don't feel like that's helpful enough. The closest loved ones I've had pass were my father and grandfather but I wasn't responsible for their funeral arrangements. What does someone in a place like this need? I can't physically go there for support and I don't have any money to send. But I'm worried she doesn't have anyone nearby to help her. How were you helped after the death of ancoose loved one or how have you helped? She's a great lady and I hate that there's not much I can do for her.Answer Question

Keep contact with her and that's about all you can do. Sometimes when people lose a spouse they go through a period where they really just want time and space to take it all in. Good luck hon, you sound like a good friend.
