Death is a natural part of life, but it is still a challenging and overwhelming experience when someone you love passes away. If you have a friend who has experienced a loss, it may be hard to know what to say or do to express your sympathy. Phrases such as “I’m sorry for your loss” and “you are in my thoughts and prayers” can go a long way in showing that you care. You can express sympathy at the cemetery service in the Los Angeles area as well as in the days and weeks before and after. Consider bringing food to the bereaved after the funeral, as they may not have the time or inclination to cook. You can also identify and fill a need, such as running errands or making arrangements with the cemetery. Take a look at this infographic to learn more about expressing sympathy after a death.
