Mrs J, being able to listen is a huge benefit to them all, I am sure they are grateful they have you, so they can unload.

Look after yourself, you are in my thoughts x

I agree with the others Mrs J. In a crisis it is great getting the practical help… but what we really want is someone who’s prepared to listen. That’s the greatest help of all.

I tried to post the other night but couldn’t, sorry. Just wanted to add my agreement, often bereaved family do want someone who’ll just listen. Don’t undervalue what you’re doing it yourself, they want to talk about the people there lost and too many people avoid them as they feel uncomfortable and don’t know what to say. Keep it up but don’t tire yourself out.
