My father in law suddenly passed 4 weeks ago tomorrow. I am struggling with missing him, feeling so sad for his wife, feeling so sad for his sons, not knowing how to help my other half grief about his dad. He was the best dad in a law a girl could want. I am struggling with nightmares, is that normal?

I'm very sorry to have read in the obituaries that your family has experienced the pain of losing a loved one in death.Grief takes on all forms anger, crying, nightmares,ect. During this time of mourning, I would like to express my sincere condolence at the loss of your Father in law and I pray everything is going as well as can be expected. May God comfort you at this time of sorrow and bless you through the days ahead. You can help; be available, provide reassurance and be patient and understanding don't be too surprised by what bereaved ones may say at first. Remember, they may be feeling angry and guilty. If emotional outbursts are directed at you, it will take insight and patience on your part not to respond with irritation. Although your pain will not easily disappear, prayer to God will bring comfort to you as you grieve. The Bible assures us God "is healing the broken hearted ones, and is binding up their painful spot." Psalm 147:3
