I’m so sorry …

Two days ago our friend’s father died. He was in his 80s, on life support, and his life ended.

I hate death. I mean, I really hate death. It pains me, no matter whether the deceased was 10 or 50 or 85. It’s still the end. Over. Never again.

I also struggle with the aftermath of someone’s loved one dying. I detest saying, “I’m so sorry,” because it’s cliche, and repetition has made the three words seem awfully insincere. Of course, I am sorry. Very sorry. But the words don’t convey that.

Anyhow, off to bed. Hug your family.

  1. It’s ok to say “I’m sorry for your loss.” It’s also ok to say “If there’s anything I can do for you or help you with, just let me know and I’m there.” And mean it, of course.
