Hi,
My BF lost his father suddenly 2 months ago and he is really struggling with his grief. He recently shut me out and will not respond to any oft communication (long distance relationship). I suspect that the grief is too overwhelming for him right now. What can I do to support him?

I was wondering if anyone has suggestion for me that will help my son. My son is 7 and we lost my mother in law (his grandmother) 3 years ago to breast cancer. Since then, the thought of death scares him. It was so bad that he would have nightmares and during the day, he would break down into tears. He had got better until a couple of weeks ago. My little cousin, age 9, passed away in a drowning accident. My son and my cousin were playmates. Now we are dealing with his fears all over again. He is actually taking this death harder than his grandmother's death. I think it is because he never knew her when she was well. She was diagnosed when he was 3 months old. It is hard enough to explain death to a child but when a child passes away it is really hard. He thinks now that he could die because our cousin was just 2 years older. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hi, I still experience grief over the sudden death of my mother July 30, 2012. At the same time, I three very close friends who have lost husbands  recently and one close friend who lost a 9 month old granddaughter (a twin). I feel that I can't really give them what they need from me at this time. I try to be there for the two who live near me. At the same time, I can't expect the support from them that I normally would.  Even though, my grief runs deep, I can't imagine the pain of losing a husband or a child.

You're too young to be a widow

I never thought that I would be a widow in my forties.  My friends can't relate and feel the need to comment on everything, even if they have no experience with grief.  I know they mean well but only we know what we are going though.See More

Homicide Survivors Group

I'm starting this group in hopes that people who come to oninegriefsupport in the U.S.  can share in their experiences and grief for homicide related deaths. There are tons of support grief services for cancer, alzheimers, loss of children, suicide, ..I could go on. But there are not many support groups for homicide related issues. With the growing gun-related deaths, I thought it would be prudent to create this small sub-group here.I know that grief is very unique and it shouldn't be compared…See More

New Member

My name is Wendy and I am a relatively new member. I lost my husband of 27 years, June 8th, 2019 to homicide. He was one of five lives that were lost in a mass killing in White Swan, WA. He was the love of my life. The circumstances surrounding his death are still surreal to me. During the initial months that followed that horrific day, my three Sons and I were only provided details of his murder through national media coverage. A life that was very private became very public knowledge as my…See More
