When will silence do?

At a funeral when we have that deep need to say something, silence is sometimes the best answer. At my parent’s funerals, I remember several people saying such things as, “God loved them so much He wanted them to be close to Him.” or “God needed another angel.” etc… Not the best thing to say to a child.

I understand that people have a need to say something during uncomfortable times but sometimes the least we say is the best. 🙂
