My cousin and his wife learned yesterday that they were no longer pregnant. It was in the first trimester of her pregnancy, and it was her first--they are devastated. Just over the weekend I had received a thank-you note from them for the little "congrats" pregnancy book I had sent them. This comes on the heels of my father's death less than two months ago. Are there any particular expressions of sympathy that are most appropriate at this time? Particular words to put in a card? Should I send them flowers? Having just been on the "receiving end" of people's expressions, I feel like I should know better what to say, but the loss of a 61-year-old dad compared to the loss of a baby in the womb seem like apples and oranges... I'm not sure how to let my cousins know my love and thoughts are with them.
