Tell them that you are there for them

Ask her if there is anything you can do for her. Maybe offer to spend time with her, just to let her know someone cares. She will have a grieving process she'll go through, just be understanding as no two people grieve the same. Let her talk, cry, whatever she needs to do, and just offer her your support.

This is really sad to hear, it is never easy if someone close to you has lost a family member. The best thing you can do at this time is to let her know that you are there for her.

It can be difficult to know what to do or say to a grieving person, as it is hard to know what they are going through. It is also scary not knowing if you are going to say the right thing, or even if they want your help.

What you need to do is care for her and provide support for her.

Some things you can do is:

  • Let her know that you care.
  • Ask her how she is.
  • Give her the chance to talk it through with you.
  • Ask her if there is anything you can do.

If your friend is really taking the death hard then she may not be up to performing everyday tasks herself. So you will need to use your initiative to help her out. Here are some nice ideas of practical support:

  • Take her out for food or buy her food.
  • Look after her pets.
  • Help her with work or school work.
  • Take her to places she needs to go.
  • Try to cheer her up, by taking her to the cinema for example.
