Yesterday received a sympathy card 6 months after the death of my partner.
It was a really nice touch. Sometimes you feel that people think that having survived the first few weeks of a bereavement then you are on the mend. For me nothing could be further from the truth.
This 6 month late card seemed to recognise this. They are still thinking of us, they realise that it’s still going to be bleak but they are still there if we need anything. It basically lifted my spirits for the day.
When I need to I’m going to always remember to send a second, late bereavement card out. Great idea
