  • Bringing food is a great thing to do. See if there are any errands that need to be taken care of, or any chores around the house. Even something as simple as taking out the trash can help. If there are any pets, you might be able to care for them.

  • i think you're doing a whole lot as it is but if you really wanna get into it even more, household chores are probably gonna be the last thing on her mind. like dishes and laundry or just makin sure she gets a long bath in. idk how close you are but i think it'd be really helpful

  • bringing food is so nice, maybe ask if you can take their kids for a while & give them some alone time

  • Just make sure she knows you are there for whatever might come up as a result of her grandma passing, talking about a lost love one is great therapy for anyone.

  • Of course a card, maybe some flowers. Food is a fantastic idea. Maybe the kids to make a craft or something nice.
