That would be an unimaginable pain. Best I can say is to be her friend. Let her know she can lean on you. Give her a couple/few days and see if you can get her to take a walk with you or catch a movie.

No idea what i would do or how I would cope with losing a child. Just thinking about it upsets me. Sorry to hear of this. Hope she will be ok. Be there for her as much as you can.

I have a 3 month old Grandson, I can't imagine her pain!

She & her family will be in my prayers!

There is nothing one can say when such a tragedy occurs that seems adequate.

There's no way to ease that pain for her... all you can do is be there for her! I'm so very sorry to your friend.... and I'm thankful she has a friend in you!

Thank you,Pink.

Sorry to hear that- just being a friend for her is all I can think of right now!

all you can do is be there for her!
Pink's said it all. Don't try to come up with an answer or fix can't and that's all there is to it. But, being there makes a huge difference. I can't imagine what your friend's going through. Even more, I can't imagine getting through it alone.

Right now she is probably going to be surrounded by offers of help and comfort. Be there when everyone else is gone. Let her know you are available to her. Call her and invite her to lunch, to join your family for dinner. Treat her like she is still a whole person. Keep making the offers even if she doesn't say yes. Eventually she will take you up on one. And will feel grateful that you are still there.

Nothing is gonna ease it.. but you can be there for her when she needs to hold on and cry.

Believe it or not the hardest time for her will be in a couple of days when the funeral is done and it all sinks in! Thats when life doesn't go back to normal and she will need a friend! Spend a little time with her if she will let you and let her know you care. There really is not much more you can do!

Thx everybody.Its nice to be a newbie & see the same type of down to Earth ppl as the sites where Im considered an asked her to write a letter full of her hopes & dreams for him & we sat around my firepit talking for hrs last night,where she eventually threw her letter in.She seems more @ peace,but I know thats just a stage.I think shes being kinda overwhelmed by everyones need to talk,it feels like shes taking solace in the fact that w/me theres no need to fill the void. Our Silence is comfortable...
