This is a very sensitive post. Friday afternoon my sisters daughter who had just turned 3 passed away very suddenly and very unexpectedly. Words can't describe how I feel so I can't even begin to imagine how she is feeling. I'm going to see her tomorrow, I know I have to be strong for her but I'm a little scared of what to say and what I should do. Is that really selfish of me? I want to do everything I can for her but have no idea where to start. Sone of you might know her from DW as Olive
update - olive is doing ok, well as ok as you can be in this situation, Mr O is absolutely devastated but they have family all around and a good support network.
thank you all all for your kind words. I have shown my sister all the messages and she is touched too. MD and DW are such good places in times like this. Xx

I'm so so sorry to read this PS. I don't think that's selfish at all, infact it's you being thoughtful and concerned that's making you worry about what to say.
I can't even imagine how your sister and her H and you and your family must be feeling. Thinking of you all xx

PS I am so so sorry to hear of your family's loss. I can only echo everyone by saying it doesn't make you selfish, you're grieving too for your niece, all you can do is be there to support your sister through this tough time and offer help with any arrangements if needed.Thinking of you all, sleep tight little one xx

PS I am so sorry to hear about your niece.
I agree with everyone else that you're not being selfish, you're being considerate. I think by just being there you will offer your sister some strength, I always think in loss it's much better to try and do more than less. If she needs help with any arrangements, maybe just making her drinks/ food as I'm sure she's probably not thinking straight, or just being a sister to her.
Massive hugs as I'm sure this isn't easy for you either.xxx

I was so desperately sorry to read Olive's post this morning on DW. I think it's quite understandable that you don't know what to say, but I'm sure it will be a comfort to your sister that you're just there for her. Thinking of you all and sending love xxx

Words can't describe how I feel reading this, the tears do that. This is so sad and unfair for your sister and your families, my condolences to you all.
I don't think it's all down to what to say it's about being there offering support and listening and plenty of cuddles. You aren't being selfish it's a very difficult time for your sister but also for you and your grief.
I hope you all find strength in each other during this very tough time, RIP little one xx

I am so sorry to hear this. You don't need to say anything, just be there for her and help if you can with any arrangements, and making sure your sister is looked after with food etc. You need to remember to grieve too xx
