10. Be there. Make sure they are taking care of their personal needs.

People who are newly grieving can be absent-minded. They might need help with basic tasks like cooking, cleaning and other things like remembering to pay bills on time.

As for emotional comfort, the best thing is to just listen and give comfort. As well, gently steer them away from making major life choices as the tendency to do such is very common.
