Communications should start with immediate family members and close friends. The family can determine how they need to facilitate this communication. Once immediate family, friends and clergy have been notified, then extended friends and family should be notified. Once the word gets out, people may start coming by the house to offer support. To help organize the village, one person should be appointed as the single point of contact. This will ensure that the same message is communicated out from the family.
