Finding the right words to say to someone after they’ve suffered a loss is never easy, but know that your mere presence is comforting. It isn’t necessary for you to say much at all. In some cases, the less you say and the more you listen, the more you’ll help the person who is grieving. Do tell your friend that you’re sorry for their loss, and offer your assistance to help them through this difficult time. Your friend might need someone to accompany him or her to the funeral home to make the arrangements, for instance.
