I'm new to this site, so maybe you all have covered this already, but I have a suggestion for those who are trying to find ways to support someone who has lost a spouse...whether recently or many years ago. After I lost my husband, my siblings contacted all his friends, family members, and even our own children to gather memories about him. They typed up all the memories, put them in a scrapbook, and presented it to me. To this day, it's the most precious material possession I have. It brings back wonderful memories and gives me and my kids comfort, even six years later. And it gives me great peace and joy in knowing how special he was to people and that they haven't forgotten him.
