Great friends don’t just send their condolences …

“You find out who your friends are – Somebody’s gonna drop everything – Run out and crank up their car – Hit the gas, get there fast – Never stop to think ‘what’s in it for me?’ or ‘It’s too far’ they just show on up with their big old heart – you find out who your friends are!” – Tracy Lawrence

“Most friends send a sympathy card after your loved one dies. Many will attend the funeral but stay distant afterward. But some friends narrow the distance forever, by being a consistent, supportive and compassionate presence; before, during and long after the funeral.” ~ Sue Rosenbloom

“Good friends send their condolences when you are grieving. Great friends deliver their condolences in person.” ~ Sue Rosenbloom
