    What do you say to a friend who just lost a kid to the War in Iraq, knowing their lives will never be the same? Please say a prayer for my friend and ALL of our troops who fight for our freedom every day !!!!!

    I think people often say too much. Just say how sorry you are.

    God bless them and their son.

    Try to be close by but not too close. When they are crying, stay close. Somebody once said that crying alone is hard.

    Sorry to hear of your friends son's death. I have never seen what to say when those times come. Make sure your friend knows you are there for him don't know what else to tell you. Sorry to hear it. Dan

    I would say "Please call me if I can help in any way, even just to talk".

    Then I would leave him be.

    Thank them for their family's sacrifice and tell them how sorry you are for their great loss. Don't mention God at this point unless they bring it up, because they are probably not understanding God at this moment. Then be there for them no matter what.
