What should I offer my neighbor?
A neighbor’s husband recently committed suicide. I have never met her or her husband, but as it is a small neighborhood and I live a few houses down, I want to do something for her. I just don’t know what would be appropriate.
She has posted fliers inviting the neighborhood to the funeral on Saturday. I was thinking of writing a note with my phone number and address. Something like “If you need anything, please don’t hesitate to call,” but that doesn’t seem adequate, and, coming from a stranger, it’s doubtful that she would take me up on the offer. I don’t want to be intrusive, but I want her to know that her neighbors are a source of comfort and assistance in what must be the worst time of her life.
Any suggestions from the Fluther ‘hood?
