My DSIL passed away after a long illness a few weeks ago.
My DD cared for him whilst working and looking after 2 DC.
She's finding it hard and I am not sure how to help. How much to do, not do. She won't ask. I've made some meals, stayed over a couple of times. There are a lot of willing F&F if needed.
Naturally, she mostly doesn't want to talk. Sometimes she's understandably snappy.
I will help the kids get cards and presents for Mother's Day. I know Valentine's Day will be another hard one. Should I buy her some flowers, which she has had a lot of over the last few weeks anyway. It will probably make it worse I guess if I did.
It's not from him and nothing can ever make it better.
What did other Mums/Grans do?
