I always send a sympathy card with a hand-written comfort letter when I know a friend has experienced a loss. Now I'm at a loss over what to expect. I sent a card and letter to two friends who also lost their mothers in this past year. One sent me an email saying "So sorry. I'd send you a card, but I know you're not home." The death occurred in another state, but I'm home now. The other has not written or called - she doesn't do email & I know she is aware of my loss. My best friend (or so I thought) send a two-line email the day after Mom died & I've not heard from her since. Is it too much to expect someone to send a card today? I'd love something to tuck into my book of memories that I can take out, see & physically hold - not an email that got deleted.
