My girlfriend's mom - November 8th 2009, 12:39 AM

So my girlfriend's mom died today, I have no idea what I should do. I'd like to tell her I know what she's going through and that it will all be fine but that'd be a lie. I've never lost a parent, I don't know what she's going through, and I don't know if things will be fine.
To anyone on here who has lost someone that close to you, what did or could have someone done to help you through that time? She says she'll be fine in a few days but I don't believe that, they were too close. She was also the main provider in her home, so I don't know how they're going to be doing financially.
Please, someone tell me what to do. I just want to help her through this.

All you can do is be there for her and make sure she knows you are there to talk to whenever she needs it. Take your cue from her, if she wants to forget about it for a day do something fun, if she wants to talk about it or visit the site of her moms grave do that. It will definately take time but one day she will be ok.
Good luck to both of you and her family!

I think just having someone there for you when you have lost someone close is something, which can help a great deal. You just need to tell her to try to hang onto the happy memories of her mum. It is going to take time and losing someone so close is one of the most difficult things you go through. But I think just having you there she will appreciate
