What to Say to The Parents of a Dead Teenager

A young preacher heard about a sudden and tragic death of a teenager in a car accident. He rushed to the home of the parents only to find them standing in the front yard next to their car. They had just arrived home from the hospital.He didn’t know what to say so he said nothing. They hugged and cried together. After an hour he left; never uttering a word. He felt he had failed until several weeks later he received a card from the couple thanking him for the comfort he gave them that day. They thanked him for not saying anything but for just being there and sharing their grief. (Source Unknown, Lou Nicholes - Missionary/Author).
