Hi Spine 95 and Ginnie,
Spine95- You are a very supportive friend to request support for your friend!
I, too, will offer prayer around this entire situation.
I had lost two brothers and it was tough. It was an even bigger challenge for my mother, their mother!
There's a lot of info and support out there in many communities, etc.
I'd like to mention a resource for your friend: Please see Colin Tipping's
He does very insightful work with people around forgiveness and grieving, etc.
He has also written a few books on these topics, Radical Forgiveness
,and more. Please take a peek and see if you'd like to offer this info to your friend.
I've read some of his books and they are well worth the time and effort, for sure.
His books are usually available at any bookstore, too! This gentleman is sincere and incredilby heartful in all he offers to anyone willing to work on healing themselves and healing situations. His site is easy to find, just use his name in your search!
With you and your friend...and this entire situation... in mind.
My Very Best,
