I think losing one’s mom is the most difficult one. I am sorry for your loss, P47P47, and hope you find strength in lifetime memories. I lost my mom many years ago and know the sadness.🦋

My father just passed, I wouldn't want anyone at work to say anything because for some reason that "tone" always makes me burst into tears, which I would rather avoid at work. A card left on my desk though is a lovely thought. I think it might depend on a judgement of who the person is - are they an extrovert who might like to cry and vent a little or are they a very reserved person who would rather be private. I would tailor my approach to who I think the person is and what they might want.

Yes, I think this is a good approach, too.
