Trying to find the right words to say to a bereaved individual can be quite difficult. However, you should not let your discomfort prevent you from reaching out to someone grieving. Also, it is important to remember that there is no right or wrong way to grieve — it involves extreme emotions and behaviors, and it has no timetable.
When talking to a bereaved loved one, simply keep the following in mind:

  • Ackowledge the situation
  • Express your concern
  • Be honest and don’t hide your feelings
  • Offer your support
  • Ask how he or she feels
