A little angel in heaven

I found out today that a friend of mine suffered a miscarriage. I didn't know what to write. Here's what I ended up with:

These are the times when I wish that I was nearby. I wish I was there to try helping you sort through it all. I wish I was there to bring the tissues. I wish I was just there.

If you don't feel like e-mailing back, I just want to let you know that we're thinking about you.

It sounds trite. It doesn't sound good enough. Honestly, I was afraid to e-mail because I didn't know what to say. I know nothing I say can make a difference. Yet I know there's not much I can do, being so far away from them. One thing I'm sure of is that Baby Emma's in heaven, looking down on them.

Too sad.
