Mourning and Thoughtfulness


There was a wonderful post in the paper today about those in mourning. (Who will be all of us at one point or other) It's just such a dicey subject.  If you have not attended any services for the departed, what do you say to the survivors when you do see them eventually?  Do you not say nothing, risking the thought that you will be perceived as heartless? Do you just jump in and grab them by the arm and get right into it?  Dicey, right?

Well, anyway I guess it's a personal decision and when the moment is right for both parties, just jump right in.  Or not.  Interesting take.
