How do you help a grieving friend?

#6 Anticipate, don’t ask.
Do not say “Call me if you need anything,” because your friend will not call. Not because they
do not need, but because identifying a need, figuring out who might fill that need, and then
making a phone call to ask is light years beyond their energy levels, capacity or interest. Instead,
make concrete offers: “I will be there at 4 p.m. on Thursday to bring your recycling to the curb,”
or “I will stop by each morning on my way to work and give the dog a quick walk.” Be reliable.
