Re: Grief? Depression? Help please
I appreciate your not wanting to hurt his feelings, but obviously this is a conversation someone has to have with him. I think that I would say, "the family has noticed that you have been terribly sad since my sister died. We are worried about you, and think that you may be drinking too much. Is there any way that we can support you as you get some help?"
Then all you can do is pray. But please, do say something.
