Suggestions for a friend who lost 3rd brother today to suicide

I lost my brother April 1, 2016 to suicide. I write this not for the pain that I, and I am sure each of you, feel daily but for a friend of mine going through a much harder time then me. Back in 2008 she lost a brother to suicide, then in Oct. 2018 another one, and then she found out today that another brother took his life. They were a family with 5 kids..now it is just 2. I know somewhat of the pain she feels since I lost my brother, but I don’t know how to help her. Would love any thoughts or suggestions y’all have. Just to let you know we don’t live in the same state. Thanks!

    Well it’s difficult for anyone to lose a family member, as you know, but 3 is obviously much worse to deal with. I lost my brother last year so I’ve been dealing with his loss only lately. I wish i knew how to help her. As you know there are very little that words can do. She just needs people to be around so she can talk or just so she knows she’s not alone. A good support system is vital. Wish more could be done.
