    What Do You Say?

    What can you say to someone who's lost a loved one or relative? Anything I might say sounds lame and pointless. But you can't just pretend nothing's happened.

    And maybe, just maybe, don't even judge me if you HAVE walked in my shoes. Everyone is different, and a little empathy and understanding can go a very long way.
