how to console someone after death?
I have been friends with an elderly indian couple over the net for many years, I lost contact for about a year when my email was hacked but I found them again, only to find the husband had recently passed, the wife has taken some time before she wanted to talk to someone and now she feels ready to talk, but I dont!
i am no stranger to death, but this is a lady I have never met in person and has very different beliefs to me I know mostly she just needs to be able to talk to release her emotions but still I have trouble knowing how to respond , if she was someone with similar beliefs I could respond with similar ideals on recovery, if I knew her in person I would have a better idea on what words would help comfort her, if she were here with me I could just hold her and let her cry. I have none of these things in my favor, I dont want to say the wrong thing, I cant just say nothing either being online she may think shes talking to a blank screen, she feels she has no one else to talk to about it, im normally good at this sort of thing, but this time I’m totally lost…Help!
