"My partner and I both felt the loss deeply, but while I sent condolences to her family and expressed heartfelt grief, he turned his grief into action. He flew to the family’s side, assisted with funeral arrangements, and established a scholarship to educate her child. He did all this quietly and without fanfare. His decisive actions put my expressions of sympathy to shame."
Joel Peterson, Chairman, JetBlue Airways, Professor, Stanford GSB
"Any sadness a friend’s question might stir is far offset by the joy of knowing that they care and recognize your grieving. Talking about loss is cathartic and an important step in the healing process. By asking, you help your friend grieve."
