David,
My arms are reaching out to you in an enveloping embrace. My friend, you know that I've been through something close to this. No one's story is exactly the same, and no one's grief is the same, but there are many similarities. I am here if you need me.
I'm glad you've reached out to these folks. They will be here for you, too. In many cultures, sitting in vigil with the bereaved is a way to honor the dead and honor the grief. We are here for you, candles burning. Say what you need to, and especially, tell us about your wife. We want to know her, too.
All my love,
Allison

I attended the visitation today, along with Daylia and a number of other close friends of David's (Raptor's). He's a strong and good man. I believe he will weather this storm okay. Some of us are going to be right there to help him do that too. I saw a lot of affection today, and a lot of the goodness in people, although they may not know just what to say at such a time.

Well, words may never be enough, but the heart knows what it knows, regardless. And in our hearts we are right there, with strength greater than we know to carry us through. Blessed be.

David,
I'm so glad you're surrounded by good friends. Lean on them, hard.

And friends, remember to call him often- even weeks from now. Especially weeks from now! Make note of the date of her death, call him every month on that date. Let him know he's loved. Invite him to supper. Tell him your memories of his wife, however trivial they may seem to you, they will be precious to him. Dig out every photo that might have a glimpse of her. David will need you for the long haul.

Forgive me Alison;

David should share storyies when he is ready and NOT before. Right now David neend to go throu the grieving phase, and his wife needs healing on the other side. If he is forced to discuss his wife before he is ready; her soul will know of his grief and she will come back to be with him instead of getting the help she needs.

Right now both of them are doing what is best; so please leave it at that until he is ready to talk about this.

Forive me again Allison.

You are right and wrong at the same time.

You are correct that David's friends should lend their support and contact him often.

I would NOT recommend calling David on the monthly aniversary of Heidi's passing. That day would be a good day to take David out to eat, or go out to a movie to lift his mood.

Calling on the monthly aniversary of her death would lower his mood instead of elevate it.

Aloha nui loa, Two Bears;   

I'm so glad you've decided to post here. It's very difficult to know how to deal with tragic situations like David's in a healthy way. Especially in Western culture, where passing on is still such a misunderstood, feared and taboo subject for most people.

Thank you for your insights. I'm taking them into contemplation as I work out the best ways of "being there" for my friend. It's been a real pleasure to have your wise and caring influence in my life over the last few months, to have met you in Atlanta with Little Hawk, to have discovered, through you, the miraculous spiritual technology of ancient Hawaii called HUNA. Holy HUNA!   :-)

Mahalo nui loa,
