Sorry for Your Loss…

What can you say to a person that lost their mother?
There’s nothing you really can say but the usual phrases like; you are in my prayers or sorry for your loss.
There isn’t enough tea in china or words that are used daily around the world to ease the pain.
Death is a part of the life cycle which I deem very ugly but a necessary woe.
Sometimes a nice, long warm hug with silence is more comforting than being bombarded with words.
Letting them know that you can’t imagine how they feel; however you hurt because they hurt.
You are sad because you love them so much that seeing them experience this dreadful life event makes you sad too.
When I was young people used to say death is just the beginning!
Maybe so but you can’t tell someone who who just lost their mommy or daddy that death is something to not be sad about.
