Family members can find the death of a loved one very painful and hard. The death of a person can influence a lot of decisions in the family.
Death can greatly affect those around you and finding ways to comfort them can be extremely difficult. It can be more difficult than even the death itself.
The first place to start is to be around for the grieving. Let them know that they can genuinely find a place to calm themselves in you, that you will always be there for them when they need you. Don’t try and avoid this situation because it makes you feel uncomfortable and awkward.
Knowing that your presence alone is required to bring calm and warmth is good. Don’t try and send cards or flowers as physical presence is what is needed. Always know that whatever the case it will be uncomfortable in your family whenever there is death.
To some flowers are flowers, but individual flowers are good for each occasion. Picking a wrong one can be disrespectful and a disgrace. This therefore requires careful planning and care whenever you want to pick an arrangement for the funeral. Always select a color that will best fit the character of the dead when he was alive.
Research different flowers on the market will serve your purpose well. Don’t buy the first thing you see. This can be totally wrong for the occasion. Doing a little research will aid your course. If the dead were vibrant then consider pink lilies or daisies. Try white roses if they were calm and collected.
When you are grieving know that time heals all wounds and that though it is hard and painful today within time you will be alright.
Be sure to be there for someone when they are within this period as your support might make the difference.
