Off the transplant list

I've a friend, his wife was hospitalized last week end. Today her condition was bad enough that they took her off the transplant list. They will take her off the ventilator as soon as her doctor arrives in the morning to handle that. The funeral will be early next week.

Words fail me. We've been in reversed positions, and words failed him. He knows exactly how I feel and I how I wish so much there was more I could do. But words are all we have.

Words ... and friends you've never met who would share the burden if we could.

There are words to comfort for friends such as "I'm sorry for your loss." However, I think that you mean words that could express how vey sorry you are for their loss and that could reach him in the way that you would want to lift him. Being there for someone can be so powerful even if we don't have the words.-Barb
