Death is an indescribable thing. I have had friends lose family members and friends, and I have always been there for them. But even as I go through it another time, I still never know what to say. There isn't much you can say, or do, and even if I feel like I'm saying all the right things, it just seems as if I'm causing more pain for that person. I hope that isn't what I'm doing, because I really am just trying to help and be there as much as I can. But maybe what they really need is to be alone. To have time to think. I know there is always denial inside, and so they need time to accept it and move on. I guess I just want to be there in the process. To lend a helping hand, a shoulder to cry on, and so on. I am trying. Maybe too hard?
I am here. I will always be here. I love you.
