On the 4th of July a coworker in a different departments wife was killed when she was walking on the sidewalk by a vehicle. They had just celebrated their 39th wedding anniversary on the 2nd. My heart is just broken for him. He always talked about her and how the silly things she would do that made him mad I laughed of course. You could tell how much he loves her. I've heard of his texts about his hearts in pieces and how he never thought he would have to live without her. He hasn't came back to work yet but I need some guidance as to what to say when he does come back? I want him to know that I'm here and will talk to him but scared of asking to many questions or having it be awkward.

My father last year died and i was heartbroken. He was my father and my best friend. No words of comfort helped me to feel better , but I valued and appreciated them very much from everyone
. People just hugging me and being a shoulder to lean on when I wanted to pour out my heart meant so much to me.
Small gesturues such as going for a walk , or out for a coffee to let me know people cared and wanted to be there for me. Even if I didn't take them up on the offer their kindness and eagerness to help was never forgotten
Sometimes all you need is someone's presence and a hand to hold. Even if they have no words of comfort to offer. I look back now on all those who genuinely cared , and i get great comfort now just knowing I wasn't alone during such a sad time
The smallest of things mattered the most such as a hug , and a sincere listening ear.
