I like what you are saying, Rick.  Sometimes I think we say “I am sorry for your loss” when we don’t know what to say.  People might respond – “it is not your fault.”  I like what you suggest to say – “my heart hurts for you” and “nothing will ever be the same.”  Those are great suggestions.  I also like that you try out different phrases and see the response.  I think that is a good practice to embrace.
