Being There For Someone In A Time Of Loss

I went to the graveside service of a friend of mines father who passed away a few days ago. The best way you can console someone is to be there for them. You don’t have to really do anything other than to just stand beside them and let them just talk. Words can be a comfort but presence is a greater comfort.

Everyone has experienced some form of loss and we all go through times when we need someone to just be in a place where they know they are cared for. Death or a breakup or anything that has changed your life is something we all have to deal with. Blessed are those who mourn and blessed are those who answer the call to offer care, comfort and compassion.
