Also friends, and maybe even fellow employees! You may not even know that some people are affected that didn't even know the loved one who died!

React.

How do I react when something comes up like this? Some will say that there's no way to help fix this and they don't want to but its so important to take the time to ALWAYS talk about it, seeing how serious this is! Never let the person feel useless, once you see the signs make sure always react fast. There is always something to live for!
