When a friend experiences the loss of someone close to them, they might feel as though no one cares, or that life is moving by without pausing. Letting your friend know that you're keeping them in your thoughts and prayers helps them feel as though they aren't alone. It reminds them that caring friends surround them. This phrase can also segue into an offer to be a listening ear, such as "Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. Would you like to tell me more about your aunt? I'd love to hear your favorite memory of her."
