I need some help. My boyfriend's best friend of 13 years committed suicide a couple days ago. This came as a tremendous shock to everyone including him. I have never experienced a close death before, so I'm not sure what to say to him or even know how to console him. I feel at a loss of what to say and am afraid that he will start to become distant with me. I'm almost feeling that he wants me to be how his friend was and it's difficult because we had completely different personalities. I also feel helpless because I live quite a ways from him and can't be with him all the time. I understand he's going through the grieving process and I want to be there for him 100% but I just don't know what I can do to help him if anything. Can someone provide me some direction as to how I might be able to help him through this?
