My neighbour died this morning. Fairly young, very short unexpected illness, leaves a young child and partner. I am reeling, goodness knows what they are feeling. Is there anything I can do? Don't know what's appropriate sad

Food they can just heat up is always a help. We had a recent bereavement and it was great not having to cook. Also if there are a lot of callers at the house someone to make tea/ coffee and do the washing up is really useful. Mind you we were in Ireland so it was a full wake with loads of callers. It's difficult if there is a young child. If they know you well some babysitting may be useful while they sort funeral arrangements.
