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.
