What would you say?

Charlie Shedd says, “As I made my way up the walk, I heard a woman screaming.  Could it be Rebecca?  In trouble?  Dashing up the steps, I opened the door.  There she stood phone in hand, baby in arms, two others hanging to her apron.  I will never forget that picture:  utter horror, panic, dismay.  They were calling from the office to tell her David, her husband, had been electrocuted!  Never in my life have I felt so sorry for anyone.”

What can one say at a time such as this?  Not much, not right then.  All you can do is be there.
