Some feel the need for companionship while others prefer to left alone when they are grieving. You should be able to judge what the person wants and console them accordingly.
- You can help them plan a memorial service, as it will provide them some peace and comfort. You can invite other friends or family members that are fond of animals and pets to the event.
