What on earth to you say to a relative whom their other half commits suicide, to comfort them. She was onl 38ish, her oldest daughter just had their first grandchild, her youngest boyjust started high school, and her oldest boy made the football team - life was going good for that family - so we thought.
But, mom took her own life last Monday - what do you say to they kids, the dad - who would give you the shirt off his back? Mom was stressed at work and upset with some family members, but nothing we all don't go thru here and there. What on earth do you say???????????Never been to a funeral due to this???? Our family is HUGH, it'd be like looking up the ast name Smith in the phone book, so I'm sure the funeral is going to be hugh.
But what on earth to you say to comfort her family???

At times there are no words but facial expression of sadness and hugs. Just to be there if they need you. Bring food (casserole) in the coming weeks as form comfort.
One just doesn't know what goes on behind close doors.
