Subject:  What to say when someone's son is dying. . . Date:  4/3/2008  8:23 PM

My roommate in the group home's son is dying and I don't know what to say! I asked all the wrong questions and was told if I couldn't say anything helpful to not say anything at all!

I was devastated and of course started crying again. . .

I wanted to know when she would be leaving to be with him (a touchy subject I found out later, because she didn't have a ride) what was causing the liver failure, why was his temperature 107, etc.

I didn't know what to say. Maybe you can help me out.
