The classmate probably
feels like he/she is from a different planet
At least say, "hello," "welcome
back," "Iím glad to see you," or
The brave might even say: "I
missed you," "Iím so sorry to hear
your ís death."
Even braver friends might make
statements like, "It must be incredibly
have your die."
Other options include: write a
brief note or card, call, etc.
If your classmate cries,
that is okay; you did not cause the grief; offer
comfort and a tissue
