Go to: Religion as "comfort" to people in distress: fact or myth?

Sorry...the Eternal Inner Child...Is that a book or just something you've coined for your own purpose. I'm wondering about how I could learn more...

Can anyone refer me to a website, guidebook or "bible" (that's a joke....) on the grieving process? I am honestly unsure what to do. Is there a process that most atheists go through? I'm thinking something comparable to "Death and Dying" by Elizabeth Kubler Ross. I recognize that this is far more complex than can be addressed in any one book but I''d appreciate a starting point.

So I have a friend who is atheist. She is going through a significant amount of loss. Our differing views have never been an issue. We mostly joke back and forth however, lately, I find myself struggling for how to support her. I mostly stay quiet and listen....still I wish I knew what to say. What "should" I say? How can I offer support without being as offensive as you mention in this discussion?
