I'm with everybody else Treagum. My Mother died on May 7th last year. The day before Mother's day. My dad died three months later on August 7th. It helped to have my friends come up to me with their condolences and offers of help. I may have lost my mom and dad but my friends were still there to support me and they were letting me know it! The best time and place to let your friend know how you feel is HERE and NOW! Call him up. Offer your condolences and help if he needs it. Let him know that his friend cares about him.
