Re: What to say when your friend's mother died
I lost my mum two years ago, in a way it just seems so so much longer and in other ways only like yesterday. Not a day goes by that I dont think of her and miss her so so much. She was 63 when she died.
What I found people saw how sorry they are, but a few weeks later your old news, my mum died in may and I remember someone saying to me I was going to have the Best Christmas Ever (as my son was now coming into the santa stage !) I just said what? . To me things will never be the same. What I am trying to say, be there if your friend needs you, pop over for a coffee, plan a lunch,,, it is really strange how after a few weeks you are meant to be "NORMAL" in time it gets easier but there is always a gap, that you just learn to live with. Remember her especially on the hard days, Mothers Day, Christmas, Easter,.......... and of course everyday life. She will have her good and bad days........
