One of your friend just tells you someone near and dear to
them dies, what do you do? Of course we all do the obvious
and say we are sorry. But I mean if that sufficient?
Probably not but we seem to always say it. That situation
is so akward. I am often at a lose for words when I hear
this. My pathetic sorry is not going to do anything. I
often wonder if this makes the other person feel better?
But then again it is rude to just not say anyting, so I go
ahead and say I am sorry to hear that, and there is that
long akward silence. Sigh maybe one day I will come up with
something better to say
