I went into work on Thursday and saw a coworker of mine, whose Dad had just died. I had no idea at all what to say so I simply gave him a hug.
A short while later another coworker came in. “How’s your mother doing?” she asked.
“Fine,” came the immediate reply. “She’s doing fine.”
The coworker placed her hand on his shoulder and leaned close. “You’re going to have to be strong for her.”
