C
My reasoning: The nurse realizes that the client's partner may be a victim of disenfranchised grief and expects that no one will acknowledge that the partner is grieving or offer support. The nurse extends condolences appropriately. The expectation of the gay partner is that the community, the partner's family, and the workplace will all ignore the validity of his grief.
