I went to a funeral today.

Visitation was last night. I saw the boy who played ball for me, sitting alone by himself. I went over to talk to him, but what can I say to an 11 year old boy whose mother just died? I know he knows that his mother is in Heaven with Jesus, but he also knows that she isn't there with him. What can I say to the boy, to his dad who just lost his wife? So, I told the boy if he ever wanted someone to shoot hoops with, give me a call. That we'd be praying for them. What else can I do?

I feel inadequate today.
