Gevaldig !

Great job! Very funny and hit on so many topics that people spending time in the hospital hear over and over again from well meaning but uninformed 'friends'. Everyone becomes an expert at whatever is ailing the person they decide to visit, and then feel it their duty to share their advise.

best to keep your mouth shut

Last friday I ran into a friend that was going through a difficult time . She had sustained an injury, and 2 other members of her immediate family also underwent physical ailments. , She told me that a well meaning friend actually said to her that she didn't daven hard enough on Rosh Hashanna . Go figure!!

I agree about...How NOT to make a shiva call?

I just want to say i agree with with person who wrote that they should make one how NOT to make a shiva call. I unfortunelly recently sat shiva for my mother A"H. and the things people came and said to my family or even to each other in front of us was was so hurtful. Its such a hard time and people can make it even more painful. They can ALSO bring you so much comfort if done in the right way.
