I have done What Would You Do? and What Would You Do Part 2.
This is sort of a continuation of that that has quite a bit to do with my last post Jesica 6.4.76 - 10.9.09.
The question I pose this time is What Can You Do?
I mean no disrespect to anyone at all and I am very thankful for all of the thoughts and prayers from everyone so don't take this the wrong way, it is just my way of getting things off my chest.
The statement I have been getting so much these past couple of days is some form of 'if there is anything you need, please call (email) me (us).'
I completely understand the need for someone to convey this feeling to someone that has lost a loved one but it really hit me this weekend that I really don't understand how to respond to something like that.
What can a person really do for someone that has lost someone this close to them?
I guess the people that are close to that person geographically could do things like bring meals if they were needed or something like that but what about people that are hundreds or even thousands of miles away. What can they really do?
Perhaps it is just a way for someone to let them know that they are saddened by your loss as well and just want to let them know that they are not alone in their pain or something along those lines. But to be perfectly honest (and again, no disrespect intended here) even though the sentiment is appreciated, it is not really all that comforting.
I am sorry if this has offended anyone and that truly was not my intention with this post. Like I said, it is just me trying to get something off my chest. Call it venting or something like that or call it my way of trying to deal with the situation.
In spite of these weird feelings I am having, I do thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers and words.
God Bless you all.
