What to Make For Grieving Family (Summer Dish)?

My neighbors just lost a loved one and I'd like to take a food dish over but need ideas for this time of year. In the past I've taken lasagna, but with the warmer weather I'm looking for some ideas on large casserole type dishes or other suggestions?

    I find during this time of year when it is hot Salads and cold cuts seem to fit. There is no cooking and the recipients can snack or just pick rather than have a sit down meal. Fruit and dip is also a great option

    Cold cuts with rolls or a loaf of bread.

    Meat and cheese tray, veggie tray or fruit tray. One of the best packages I received when my husband passed away was from a co-worker who brought toilet paper, napkins, paper towel, paper plates, plastic silverware, mayo, mustard, ketchup, coffee -- everything that you don't want to run out of when you have a houseful of people. I have taken this many times since then to those who are grieving or have a serious illness in the family and have a houseful of people visiting--it is always appreciated.
