SCOTTSDALE - The unthinkable has happened: a friend's loved one has died. What can you say to comfort them? And equally important, what should you not say?
Amy Florian, a nationally acclaimed speaker on grief whose husband was killed in a car wreck 34 years ago, shared her expertise on the topic at St. Patrick Parish April 23. Florian, with a master's degree in grief studies, has worked with more than 2,000 grieving people over the years and teaches a graduate-level course at Loyola University Chicago.
For starters, don't be afraid to say the name of the person who died, Florian said.
"We are afraid when we say the name we will make them cry....but the tears are there, so go ahead and say the name," Florian said.
One of the most upsetting things people sometimes say to the grieving is, "I know just how you feel," Florian said. "No, you don't. And don't hurry people along in their grieving.
Your job is not to cheer them up, but rather to accompany them on the roller coaster journey of the grieving process, Florian said. Don't ever try to explain death or tell them that it is just God's will that their loved one died.
Instead, you could say, "We don't know why this happens but we know God is crying with you, God is suffering with you."

Florian received a standing ovation at the end of her two-hour presentation.
Having Florian speak at St. Patrick was a good idea, he said, because of the parishioners involved in the funeral and bereavement ministries.
