What to do at a Funeral

People in my generation do not know how to handle it when a friend has a death in the family. So I am going to post some rules:

1. Do something. You feel paralyzed, but any effort is noticed. Nothing says "I'm here for you" like the smell of roast chicken.

2. At a funeral you are going to want to fill up the awkward pauses with words. Don't do it. Speak Little. Choose from following phrases: I love you. I will pray for you. I'm sorry. I'm here for you. Repeat often."

3. ‎Be there. Going through a funeral makes you feel vulnerable. You need to be surrounded by friends for support. Your presence speaks volumes.

4. Finally if you are the one who has suffered a death in the family, cry as hard as you can and as often as you need to."
