Supporting friends or loved ones when they are experience grief can be difficult.
We, as a society, are not comfortable with death and grief. This uncertainty can often cause us to pull away, or to not ask how the bereaved are doing.
It is difficult to watch our friends or loved ones suffer and be in emotional pain. However, trying to make them feel better or "get over it" is not an emotional healthy way of experiencing grief.
Please realize that grief is a process for each individual, and what may seem like the right or wrong way to experience it, is highly personal.
