Don't be afraid to talk about the person who has passed away. We often shy away from bringing up the person who died for fear of upsetting the loved ones. They are already thinking of the person, talking not only helps the people still here work through their grief but it also feels nice to reflect on someone we have lost and the wonderful parts of their life. And remember, their grief will never "go away" their life will only slowly grow around the grief. Encourage the person to reminisce and share and also support them in fun activities. Spending time actively focused on our grief and time enjoying life helps balance this process for the person how has lost their loved one.
Most importantly listen and let them share.
