  • I think there isn't much you can say. Just let her talk, and be there for her.

  • the best thing you can do is still call even if you sit with silence on the line, my cousin died in 07 he was 17 and his parents said one of the things that made it harder was that friends stopped talking to them b/c they didnt know what to say

  • Just be there for them. Whatever they need be there. No words can explain how on can feel during this time especially with a baby so young. All you can do is give them time to greive and be there at the sametime. If they want time alone then don't take it personal just give it to them. If they need an ear give it to them.

  • Keep them in your prayers and reassure them that you're there for them. Be supportive and ask if you could help with anything.
