When supporting someone who is going through the grieving process, the best thing you can do is listen. By simply listening to whatever it is they have to say, without passing judgement or steering the conversation in a particular direction, you give them the opportunity to come to terms with what has happened in their own time.
The length of time it takes for somebody to go through the grieving process is specific to each individual. Your beliefs and religious values will no doubt influence how you react to this situation, and to those around you.
