May we comfort those with anxiety & depression issues that have resulted from losing a love one....( 1Thess 5:11)...
1)Support & have empathy
2) Learn about it ( PTSD for example)
3) Continue to comfort our family and friends
We all have a fine line between actually experiencing this ourselves..
My heart goes out to those who continue to struggle with this

Some may say to men " Don 't Cry" In some cultures, its considered unmanly to cry... Well, even Jesus cried ( John 11:33). He was the greatest man who ever lived! Crying is a normal part of grieving and we should cry if we need to do so. Holding this in is very harmful.

He suffered so much for much so we can have everlasting life. I watched a movie last night that reminded me of such. He was resurrected on the 3rd day. It was sad that people were so cruel but he knew it had to be done..(Matthew 28:1-15)
Married for 30 years. Divorced for 2 1/2 years. Tried to reconcile, but my ex wife cut off all communication. She had Bi Polar disorder and we went through many hospitalizations. I believe she wouldn't have killed herself if I was still living with her. No note left. No warning signs noticed by our grown daughter. Suicide was ruled after a medical examiner's investigation. Wish I could have been there to talk her out of it. Am devastated.
Just new at this, I lost my husband on1/7/16 of a heart attack it was so sudden he was flat line 10 minutes after i got him to the hospital. This as been a eye opening for me. Getting thing into my name, insurance companies, pension, socoal security, utilities bills. Just so overwhelmed with it all. We had not had a funeral yet. My husband was a donor , the hold family is proud of him for helping other people. But we are going to celebrate his life this Spring with family & friends.

A week after my friend’s baby died, her mother-in-law appeared at her door. My friend told her she wasn’t up for a visit, but her mother-in-law assured her she would just sit and keep her company. And that’s what she did. She sat quietly in a chair near my friend. After a while, she fixed them some tea. My friend now…Continue
