When I worked at a fast food joint, I got really close with another girl that worked there. Once I left, we kind of drifted away from each other, but still talked every now and then. On the 6th her best friend was killed in a car accident because she lost control of the car while she was texting. She was only 19.
I’ve never been in this situation before, and I want to o something nice for My friend to make her feel a little better (at least for a couple hours?). Any thoughts?

Maybe just send over some flowers and a card and maybe some home made cookies…something with a personal touch is always nice. Sorry to hear about this 🙁

Thanks! I didn’t know her bff (we went to different HS) but it’s such a sad thing to experience! She’s so lost right now, and I want to do something to help.

I agree flowers or cookies would be nice. I would also include a nice note saying you are so sorry for her loss and an offer to be a shoulder to cry on and an ear to listen.

I think flowers, cards or food right now is always a nice thing to do to support someone. Writing in the card that you are there for her to talk so that if she needs you, she can lean on you.
My biggest advice would be to follow up with her in the coming weeks. In my experience with losing people close to me, everyone is all over you wanting to help in the immediate aftermath, when you’re still numb with shock. Once some time goes by and you are really grieving, most people have moved on and aren’t there when you actually are ready to talk.
