How do you talk to someone who just lost someone very close to them? I am really struggling with this. This weekend, I will be with Dan most of the time, and everybody is well aware of my talent of putting my foot in my mouth.
Right now, I vary between asking how he's doing, talking about his mother, and then trying to make him laugh. He does laugh, so I guess he appreciates it, but I don't know. Also, when I talk about his mother, I start crying, so that doesn't seem like it would help.
Anybody have any insight? Please help.
