The deceased are often on the minds of the grieving. Even if they are not talking about their loved one who died, they are thinking about them. Encouraging them to share what they are thinking and feeling about the deceased can help them process their grief. It communicates that it is “okay” to talk about that person with you. Sometimes those grieving worry that they talk about their loved one too much or that it upsets others or that people don’t want to hear more about the person who died. Offering them an outlet and safe resource to talk about their loved one can be a great gift!
