Comforting words to say when someone dies

There is nothing worse than losing someone who was a big part of your life. And comforting the one’s who has lost their loved one is also hard. Here we have picked up a few comforting things to say when someone dies.

“Try to stay positive. Everything works together for a reason.” This may come off as a bit condescending to the receiver. If not that, it’s unhelpful to hear in the mourning process.

“At least you’re still alive, you have to be grateful for that.” The focus should never be on the receiver directly but rather their relationship to the deceased and their mourning process.

“I guess it was just his time to go.” Again, this is unhelpful, unnecessary, and insensitive to say this, regardless of its truth (which can’t be verified, anyway).

“You should get over this in a couple of weeks. He will be a faded memory and you will move on with your life.” While these things may or may not happen, it’s again very insensitive to dictate whether someone will “get over” something, especially something as serious and tragic as a death in an arbitrary amount of time.

“I hated the jerk anyway. I’m glad he’s dead.” Self-explanatory.

“One day you will be talking about Jessica and a smile will come to your face first before a tear”

The best thing was from a chaplain who gave me permission to be mad as hell and instead of asking ‘why me?’ Asking ‘why not me?’

My mom made me socks and a hat for my baby gone-too-soon in pregnancy. She said, “every baby deserves to be celebrated, no matter how long they are with us.”

“A part of your loved one lives in you and all those he loved”

“Be as kind to yourself as you are to everyone else”

I received a card from a former college classmate of my husband. In the card she wrote about how proud my husband had been of me and how happy I had made him. She wrote that every time their paths crossed over the years that he always spoke so highly of me. She was in awe of how proud he was to have me as his wife.

“You will never get ‘over it’, but you will get through it”

“I can see by these pictures how much you loved each other. She must have known every day she was loved”.

“There is no right or wrong way to grieve. Your life has been changed forever”.

“You’re allowed to feel and be exactly as you are because this is your experience and no one else’s”.

“I wouldn’t be alive today if your dad hadn’t helped me get sober by giving me a reason to be sober”.

The best thing is when someone says, “I remember…” and then goes on to share a memory of the person you’ve lost.

“I cannot possibly understand how you feel. But I’m here”.

When I told a friend my heart is broken she said “I will lend you mine til yours has mended”

“It’s okay not to be okay”

“Look for signs. He will show you he is with you” [from another grieving mom]
