Well guys, here's the deal. My mom died three months ago, and while we're all learning to live without her incredible strength and influence on our family, I'm a little worried about my dad. He's still struggling after losing his wife of 43 years, and I'm concerned that the upcoming holiday is going to be especially tough.

Those of you who have been in this (or similar) situation, what did you do to help a parent through these difficult situations? Holidays are going to be especially hard this year, and as much as I want to help and support him, I'm not really sure the best way to do that.
