some truth in the humor

Although Mark was hysterically socially inappropriate (reminds of some Asperger people), Carol greatly benefitted from allowing herself to truly express the grief she was stifling behind the social convention. Food for thought.

I went to Aish a "mere" 35 yrs ago (!) and have worked in the field of bereavemetn counseling for many yrs. Tx for finding a clip which provides a practical (and certainly non-threatening) glimpse into the do's and dont's of providing heartfelt comfort. as we approach Rosh HaShaan, let's share a year of LIFE, please G-d.
