On Grief and Loss

A very dear friend of mine recently lost her mother. About 3 weeks prior to her mother’s passing, the family put her in hospice care. My friend kept asking me, what am I supposed to do during this time? Do I tell my employer or do I keep working? Do I spend every day with her or just visit on the weekends until she gets worse? No matter where she turned, there were new situations and questions without clear answers.


Of course, there’s no “right” way to let a loved one go. There’s only the choice we make in the moment that is always the best choice we could have made at the time.
