Sometimes you don't have to say anything, just be present.

Best Answer

just go hang out with them. express sympathy, and let them know you'd like to just stay with them. make sure they're eating and drinking water -- maybe you cook some food for them. volunteer to answer the phone, screen calls, etc.

Best Answer

I wouldn't say anything, I would listen.

Best Answer

phone them, & tell them you are coming over to make sure they are ok. then just ask them if they are ok, & how they are feeling...& from then on, mostly just listen. but while they are talking, try hard to see what it would be like to be in their position, & really try to understand what they are feeling (even though, it is probably almost impossible), so you can offer a few lines of support. but the most important thing is to just be there, & ask & offer ways you can help. <br />
if they are living by themselves, perhaps suggest to stay with them (or them to stay with you) for a little while. or (if they aren't comfortable with that) just make sure you pop in & check up on them/phone them from time to time. <br />
<br />
basically, the most important thing to do is: let them know you are there for them, & let them know that you care. they probably won't be the one's making contact with you, so even though they are not reciprocating, keep at it. when they are over their grief they will appreciate it, & they will probably just feel better knowing that they have such a good friend who they can turn to.

It is not your fault , :(

Best Answer

Suicide is a tragedy, suggest reading these books as a start to healing----To Heaven and Back, by Dr Mary Neal, ----Proof of Heaven, by Dr Ebner Alexander, and ----The Miracle of Fatima, the story of 3 children in Portugal during WW1. It will give understanding and another powerful gift ---is to Pray the Rosary.
