A co-worker’s father passed away a couple of weeks ago. Yesterday he came to work first time after his father’s demise. It was a weird feeling to see him. It’s not that he was acting all depressed and sad. Matter of fact, he was completely normal. But we all knew he had gone through so much pain. We knew he lost his father few days ago and his heart is probably still aching. But no one said anything. No one asked how he was doing emotionally and how things were at his home. What you say to these people, I sometimes wonder. Death is inevitable. It has to come. There is nothing you can say to ease the pain the other person might be feeling. Yet, you cannot leave them alone. But being with them and thinking how the other person must be feeling at that moment is enough to drive anyone crazy.
