With Sympathy Fruit and Gourmet Basket

With Sympathy Fruit and Gourmet Basket

Offering a gift of fresh fruit and gourmet foods is a traditional way to express condolences and let recipients know they are in your thoughts. A wicker basket is filled with fresh fruits such as apples, pears, and oranges, as well as favorite foods such as cheese, crackers, coffee, chocolate, and more. The basket will be hand-delivered to the home or funeral parlor.

There is nothing more difficult then watching those we care about endure pain.

Especially difficult is the pain that comes from unexpected tragedy. As a society who is untrained in how to help, we may feel confused or unsure of how to best support those we care for. The following guidelines can help you support your loved one during dark times.

DonĖt try to find the magic words or formula to eliminate the pain. Nothing can erase or minimize the painful tragedy your friend or loved one is facing. Your primary role at this time is simply to Ïbe there.Ó DonĖt worry about what to say or do, just be a presence that the person can lean on when needed.

DonĖt try to minimize or make the person feel better. When we care about someone, we hate to see them in pain. Often weĖll say things like, ÏI know how you feel,Ó or Ïperhaps, it was for the best,Ó in order to minimize their hurt. While this can work in some instances, it never works with grief.

Help with responsibilities. Even though a life has stopped, life doesnĖt. One of the best ways to help is to run errands, prepare food, take care of the kids, do laundry and help with the simplest of maintenance.

DonĖt expect the person to reach out to you. Many people say, Ïcall me if there is anything I can do.Ó At this stage, the person who is grieving will be overwhelmed at the simple thought of picking up a phone. If you are close to this person, simply stop over and begin to help. People need this but donĖt think to ask.

Talk through decisions. While working through the grief process many bereaved people report difficulty with decision making. Be a sounding board for your friend or loved one and help them think through decisions.

DonĖt be afraid to say the name of the deceased.

Those who have lost someone usually speak of them often, and believe it or not, need to hear the deceasedĖs name and stories. In fact, many grievers welcome this.

Remember that time does not heal all wounds.

Your friend or loved one will change because of what has happened. Everyone grieves differently. Some will be ÏfineÓ and then experience deep grief a year later, others grieve immediately. There are no timetables, no rulesÛbe patient.

Remind the bereaved to take care of themselves. Eating, resting and self-care are all difficult tasks when besieged by the taxing emotions of grief. You can help by keeping the house stocked with healthy foods that are already prepared or easy-to-prepare. Help with the laundry. Take over some errands so the bereaved can rest. However, do not push the bereaved to do things they may not be ready for. Many grievers say, ÏI wish they would just follow my lead.Ó While it may be upsetting to see the bereaved withdrawing from people and activitiesÛit is normal. They will rejoin as they are ready.

Avoid judging. DonĖt tell people how to react or handle their emotions. Simply let them know that you will help in any way possible.

Share a Meal. Invite the bereaved over regularly to share a meal or take a meal to their home since meal times can be especially lonely. Consider inviting the bereaved out on important dates like the one-month anniversary of the death, the deceasedĖs birthday, etc.

Make a list of everything that needs to be done with the bereaved. This could include everything from bill paying to plant watering. Prioritize these by importance. Help the bereaved complete as many tasks as possible. If there are many responsibilities, find one or more additional friends to support you.

Make a personal commitment to help the one grieving get through this.

After a death, many friendships change or disintegrate. People donĖt know how to relate to the one who is grieving, or they get tired of being around someone who is sad. Vow to see your friend or loved one through this, to be an anchor in their darkest hour.
