Wow. That is so sad. You may not need to say anything beyond “I’m so sorry.”

She may just want a shoulder to cry on or a hand to hold. Someone to hand her tissues or bring her food if she’s immobilized by grief.

I really don’t think there’s anything you can say in this situation. Just be there for her.

I’m so sorry for your – and your friend’s – loss.

That’s a super bummer. 

Is she someone who would appreciate having you stay over at her house?  Or being able to stay at yours? 

Tell her she can call you, any time, day or night (as long as that’s cool with you) and insist that you mean it, because people still think that they can’t.

Wow! That is so sad! 🙁 Sorry you have to experience this loss. I would just tell your friend you are very sorry for her loss and ask if there is anything you can do or  just let her know if she needs anything you’ll be there for her.

I’m sorry this is happening. I think the best you can do is be there for her and help her do the little things. Try to bring her some meals to make sure she’s eating. Maybe offer to take care of a few basic things around the house while she’s grieving and arranging the funeral. It can be hard to face day-to-day life after this kind of loss.

@Ashenstar:  I agree, there may not be more that you can say… Just be there for her, it’s going to take her a long time to heal… my heart goes out to her.

I agree with Kellmerr. I would also add, just listen to her. She is going to need a shoulder to cry on in the many, many long and difficult months ahead.

What a sad story… I will light a candle for your friend tonight.

I’m sorry for your loss…

Sometimes in situations like these just saying “I’m here if you need me” isnt enough. If she is a really close friend you may want to check in on her a lot. Drop by to help walk the dogs or make dinner etc. Maybe you and your Darling Husband can help her do the necessary closet clense when it comes time. 

Good Luck just be a supportive friend until she says otherwise.

Oh my gosh.  How terrible. 

Just keep letting her know that you are there for her.  She’s (understandably) going to go through a crazy roller-coaster of emotions and just knowing that you are there for her may be enough to help her through.

That’s horrible! : ( I can’t even imagine what she’s going through.

I can’t really add anything to what the others have said. Just be there for her, let her cry, yell, talk.

Ugh, just so awful! : (
