Response to kozar (Original post)

9. Younger people are not mean or indifferent but

like so many they are incredibly clumsy and bad about how to react the grieving members of the deceased. It doesnít mean indifference. Itís more akin to being tongue tied and socially awkward.

When my son died and even over time people I work with are not very good when it comes to dealing with death. Whenever I talked about my son like just mentioning a memory or anything that would be perfectly normal if he hadnít dies, I was met with complete silence. It doesnít mean they didnít care about me. It just means they are at a loss as to how to respond. Itís inadequate, but it is what it is.
