Summer Gilreath said: We recently lost a friend and death always gets me thinking. Everyone of us have to deal with the loss of someone we care about and have struggled with grief. I found this article with 5 suggestions when dealing with others grief that were good and wish I had realized a few times. . I agree that when you don’t mention the deceased person it does feel like you are trying to erase them in a sense. We don’t always have to agree with everything as I don’t with this entire article but this is good for someone who might know someone struggling with grief.
