A friend I know reasonably well although haven’t seen for a couple of years is very ill. Doesn’t have long as far as we know.

I am meeting them soon and feeling like I want to be prepared with what to say. I know being myself is important and having a good chat matters, but is there anything from experience I should or shouldn’t say or do?

It’s such an awful topic and can’t believe I am even writing it down. I want to do my best by them.

Awkward situation but can you ask if there is anything you can do for them? When my friend was in that situation she really wanted her toe nails cut so l obliged. And apart from that, she/he is bound to want to talk so l would just say listen and let them offload. Very sad xx
