I need some advice and I thought this would be a good place to ask without someone in my social circle seeing it.
There is a woman who is not my boss, but is the director of a school service that I am a part of. The service serves the region and she works in a different city. She directs meetings that I go to quarterly, and she organizes professional development workshops that I attend. She is exceptionally generous, I respect her and I consider her a friend although we don't socialize outside our professional capacity. I give that background information so you understand the nature of our relationship.
Her brother died a few weeks ago, and I just realized that the sympathy card I bought was not sent. What do I do? Send a new one with an apology and explanation inside? Send a note with a Christmas card? I feel like a heel.
