So sorry, Jeremiah. Words never seem enough for something like this.

Do you live close enough to visit him?

Sometimes words are not necessary, if you know what I mean...

Eyes, hugs, just being there, can say volumes more than our words can sometimes...

Even just your voice on the phone, letting him let go, just listening...

When I told the boys their Mom was dead, we just held each other and cried. Don't tell him it gets better, it don't, it gets easier. Cry with him, even it just on the phone. Tell him how much you love him and her.  Just be there for him to share with. I am so sorry for your loss.

My deepest condolences.

Be there for him, lend your strength, share his pain.  let him scream at the cosmos, and tell him he will survive this.  Darkwind is right:  it doesn't get better, but it does get easier, over time.

There is nothing to do in such tragedy. Ony the truth and sharing in suffering. If you want advice on what to say, say the truth. It breaks yur heart and you don't have any words.

Take care

"I wish neither to possess, Nor to be possessed. I no longer covet paradise, more important, I no longer fear hell. The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning, but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, But I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "
