DH’s manages an employee at his company whose brother died for complications of alcoholism/diabetes. They have gotten to be friends outside of work so it’s more than an acquaintance but not a close friend. The workplace is sending flowers but DH wants to do something personally. There isn’t a place to make donations and the family/funeral is not close (so sending food is out). Knowing DH, he would like to do send/give a token gift to let him know we are sorry for his loss. I lost a brother less than a year ago to addiction so I feel for the guy, but I can’t come up with anything even from my own experience. I just remember that a handwritten card with a heartfelt personal note can feel so touching and yet I think DH feels like he needs to do more.
