What Can I Say for True Grief Support?

Written by Clara Hinton  

Whenever we hear the sad news that there has been the loss of a child, often our first response is asking ourselves the question, "What can I say?" We want to say something that will make a difference. We feel a need to speak words that show our friends that we truly care. Unfortunately, many times, in our zeal to say something that really helps, friends end up speaking before thinking. We blurt out well-meaning words that often hurt rather than help.
