Like how does someone who's parents have died, want you to react to this. Like how do you handle this?

Fyi my father is dead.
I personally have gotten over my fathers death for the most part. If he was to somehow become the subject of the conversation I think it's in everyone's best interest to just gloss over it asap and talk about something else.
You might insist on saying "Oh I am so sorry for your loss"
But I have heard this hundreds of times and I am a bit sick of all the sympathy even if it's coming from a nice place.
A simple "oh sorry" then continuing with the conversation is a lot more tasteful. I'm even ok with people ignoring the fact.
Obviously depending on the person this may be different.
That's just me.0

Usually, I just say, "I'm sorry," and try to move on whenever I hear any family member has passed. I know that person has heard it over and over again and that it probably doesn't mean much at that point. However, I don't feel right not acknowledging it before continuing the conversation on a different track.0
