One of my roommate's father died today. My other roommates, a couple other friends, and I are trying to figure out something to do for him. Any ideas?

Food. Always food, nobody wants to cook or eat in those situations.

That's a given. We're trying to think of something more creative. We've drawn a blank so far.

Me personally, I would want to go out for a drink, have free food and be given my space.

Whatever it is, make sure alcohol is not involved, that makes things worse.

That is retarded. Not all people abuse alcohol when they get depressed. You can be depressed and drink responsibly

I don't think I have to worry about him drinking anyway. He isn't much into it.

Bad idea. Few people enjoy eating meals prepared by people whose cooking they aren't familiar with. If you're talking about store-bought finger food, binge-eating isn't a good habit to encourage, and I don't think it'll help someone get over grief anyway.

Almost everyoneI I knowI who has had a close family member die, has mentioned the food as being the thing that most got them through it.

One of my friend's dad died when I was in 6th grade. We all wrote him a bunch of letters and we all cashed in some money to get him a gift he'd been really wanting for his birthday (his dad died a few days before his birthday, and he'd really been looking forward to spending his birthday with his dad).

We're thinking about buying a ton of flowers and chocolate for him. He likes both.

Is there some game or something that's not *too* expensive he's been wanting for a while that you could get him?

Take your friend and as many mutual male friends as you can and go somewhere quiet. Then ask your friend to tell you all about his father, swap anecdotes about your own fathers, perhaps you met the man, talk about that. Sharing grief is what friends do and proves the friendship. Even young men can weep among their friends with no loss of respect when the cause is heart felt grief.

Send him into the space between the space to let his mind bathe in an ethereal rejuvenation well of energy. No better a place to go then the bathhouse for the soul.
