My friend's (lets call her Sue) father past away recently and i'm not sure how to support her. I've never had to deal with a death before so this is all new to me. We were best friends in highschool and now that we're in university we still remain good friends.
Do people want space? Attention? To be distracted? Should I stand back and wait for her to ask for my help? What are some comforting things to say other than "I'm so sorry for your loss" or something really generic.
