AskMe answer on how what to say to the dying. July 13, 2019 9:10 AM   Subscribe

Looking for an incredibly empathetic answer to an AskMe with what to say to someone when they are dying.

There was an amazing empathetic answer to a question like “what should I say/do when I’m with someone who is in their final days, dying”. It was in the context of someone not being able to respond. It had part of an answer like “make statements without answers, not questions. statements like: we love you. we are here for you. “ except those weren’t the words (I’ve looked…)

Maybe this Word for the Dying MeTa? It asks a similar question and has linked AskMe answers as well as just plain old answers.

Is the answer somewhere in this question?...

"Am I going to die?" "Probably not, but I wouldn't bet my life on it."

"I love you. I'll always love you and we'll this handle together, no matter what it is." -
