Death Bed Disasters

Don't say these things. And before someone says these are ridiculous, I've heard every one of them. I was a pastor of local churches for about 30 years and I have witnessed the deaths of many people... been with them and their families and friends. My wife is a palliative care nurse. Believe me, we've heard even worse. But, there are good things that can be said during times of grief. Things like: "I'm sorry for your loss." "Here's my number if you need someone for anything at all." "I wish I had the right words. Just know I care." Or... you can say nothing at all. Perhaps give a hug if they give you permission. It's comfort we need at times like these, not stupid explanations.
