@hiroshymatetrastar:  Hug him. Love him and be there for him. There is nothing you can say to take away the pain but by being there for him your doing so much! (: I am so sorry

@hiroshymatetrastar:  I have only lost one person that was really close to me and that was my grandpa. It was the hardest thing I have ever gone through. I have learned there are phases of grief. Maybe for the wedding do something extra special for him? I am so sorry for your losses.

@figgnewton:  +1. There are no magic words. What he needs right now is to just know that you love him and are there for him.

I am so sorry for your loss. My FH’s grandfather passed in August and it was only the second funeral he’s ever been to, plus being so close to his grandfather, it was extremely hard on him (and for me to see him so upset). It’s so difficult to see the one you love the most in pain, isn’t it? I would second what everyone else has said – just be there for him, hug him, love him and listen to him. I also found that having FH tell me stories of his grandfather and reliving good memories made him feel better. We’re also making a concerted effort to visit his grandmother more often and we’re honoring his grandfather (and both of mine who passed) at our wedding in June. Hugs to both of you.

 @hiroshymatetrastar:  I didn’t mean that you had to skip work! Sorry if I made it sound that way. I meant just more emotional support when you can be there.
