Losing a loved one is never easy, whether it was an expected loss due to old age or a sudden tragedy that no one saw coming, the pain is gut-wrenching and saying goodbye hurts.
Watching a friend or family member learn to cope with the passing of a loved one is just as hard sometimes. Maybe you are at a loss for words and are not sure how to comfort them.
Many times, a warm hug will do, being a shoulder to cry on speaks volumes.
Other times, a beautiful arrangement of flowers or a special sympathy gift basket, with a heartfelt card will do great to voice your condolences.
Regardless of what action you take, letting your friends or family know that you are there for them in their time of need is so important. Though they may ask for space, respect their wishes for some alone time to process things, however, make sure they know they can count on you to be there when they are ready to talk or simply just need a person to sit with.
Sometimes by being in the same room with them, even if you are just sharing silence, you can show you sympathize with them, because a quiet space with a friend close by may be just what they need.
