frustrating…they don’t come easy. And then it’s compounded by the fact that people
get so preoccupied trying to say the right thing that they end
up saying nothing. I don’t know what’s worse…saying the wrong thing, or saying nothing at all. I'm just saying.
So, if you ever find yourself not knowing what to say you can almost never go wrong if you speak from your heart, because people recognize sincerity and respond to it well. Perhaps what is most important is that you acknowledge your friend or loved grief and loss.
