Most of the time when a loss happens,we don't know what to do. The main complaint I hear is that people say or do the wrong thing or just disappear. But today is about the opposite reaction - Too. Much. Help. Go away!!

I generally take great care to remain neutral politically in my work, as I wish to be available to anyone who comes to me regardless of their beliefs about other things. However, since the incident with the Khan Family deals directly with grief and how it is expressed,...
