    Adding to this... pop a note in your diary six weeks from now. That is often when people go back to their lives and it may be nice for your friends to hear from you.

    I visited my Aunty and Uncle the day after my cousin died. I brought tea, coffee and biscuits, to help feed everyone who was there.

    Thinking of your friends little one, how devastating.

    This again. My DH had such a hard time coping and still does because everyone forgot about how he was feeling in the entire situation. We just past the second anniversary and I had heaps of msgs of love and support but DH had nothing, not even from his family. Just being a great friend to both, would be exactly what we would have wanted. Devastating time for your friend, sending lots of hugs.
