This is what I was thinking, too. We usually assume that we do something wrong by being quiet, but sometimes that's exactly what someone in mourning wants... not to have to deal with everything alone, of course, but to not have the phone or doorbell ringing constantly.

I'm glad that your friend was honest about her feelings and didn't just gloss over it with a, "that's okay." This was really a wake up call for you, and because you shared your story, it is a wake up call for all of us. How many of us have done the same thing? I know I have.

You've got a point...when people say it's okay in a situation like this, we know it's never just "okay," but it's all too sudden and we are at losses for words. The best things to do are to understand, learn to cope, and be there for them to heal.
