    Should people come after a month old anniversary of someone's demise to express their condolences?

    I feel they should not since the person who has suffered the loss, has come a long way (~30days) to overcome it and to take the person back to that memory is painful and making her do it all over again...Comments?

    It would be nice, but if they knew of the death when it happened they should of gave their condolences then and not wait.  The family is healing and after one month (for some) the death is somewhat easier to handle and then when someone comes to you with this it will start the grieving process over again with  saddness, and friend asking all those questions possibly about the funeral and so on.

    Its never too late to acknowledge someone's passing. Especially for a widow/er - it takes a long time to get over something like that and they appreciate the time to talk about a loved one when everyone else seems to think they should have moved on by then. The grief process takes a long time and its even worse to pretend that life should just have gone on like normal after someone's passing - especially if it was someone close to the person you are talking to. A condolence is never too late.
