Talking positively to a bereaved parent

One of the most difficult conversations that one can have is with a bereaved parent.  Some people find it so difficult to do that they will cross the road rather than talk to you and upset you.  Do not think that we did not notice it because we did.

 

As I was on the internet today I found a piece of writing that struck me as a positive way to approach this uncomfortable situation.  Unfortunately, the author is unknown.  I made enquiries but drew a blank as to whom it may be.  So I am posting it here and if the author or someone who recognises its genesis, please let me know so that I can amend the “author unknown” status.

So now you know how to gift a bereaved parent.  At all times it pays to remember we were given two ears and one mouth and they really be used in that proportion.
