You both are grieving - she did try to offer comfort so just try to remember that.

It sounds like someone (a moderator of the other site, maybe after a PM by you?) should suggest to this lady that she starts her own support thread.  I don't think she means to, but it looks like she is hijacking your thread.

A brief, intelligent, sympathetic discussion of this issue by "Ask a Mortician" on Youtube - - it really does help.

I actually am a moderator on the site. I decided to let it go after reading opinions on here, as it really put it in perspective for me that I probably took it a bit too personally (even if she really was hijacking) because of my own grief. Even though it happened months upon months ago, I'm working on a sticky for the site titled "The Etiquette of Support." Yes, I'm using tips I've learned here. :) The site is based on support and help for various issues, so of course the members go there when something happens because it's a place where they can talk about it. More often than not though, people do put their feet in their mouths and/or hijack threads (sometimes unintentionally, sometimes intentionally). I think a thread like that, using things I've learned from this site, will definitely help there. :)

That video is very good. Thank you for posting it! Maybe that's something I should include in the sticky I'm creating for the other site that I'm a member of. :)
