sorrow and grieving

Another friend is dying.  Soon I'll have another funeral to attend.  I've heard too many stories of people trying to say something, anything to express their sympathy and it comes across as trite, insensitive or empty.  I don't want to do that.  To speak foolishly and cause hurt.  I'm praying.  Praying for my friends, praying I help and not hurt, praying.

  1. What does one say? The things a person could say may be true, however, telling someone that your friend will soon be with the Lord does not take the sadness of an early departure away. Maybe it's enough to say, "I'm here with you and I'm your friend."
