In fact, don’t feel you must talk at all

You actually don’t have to say anything. You can just provide a listening ear and a shoulder to cry on. Processing one’s emotions is an important part of the grieving process, and being able to say thoughts out loud is a good way to process. So just having another person there to listen can be very helpful to someone who is grieving. It can feel like you aren’t doing anything if you don’t speak, but you are. The person would be alone with their thoughts without you there, and that can sometimes be destructive for someone who is grieving.
