Very few things are sadder than saying goodbye to someone that you love dearly. Being loving will help a lot, and of course you can open the door of communication and let them know that they can keep in touch with you if they need to. It is always hard having to say goodbye to someone you love.
Say your goodbye’s in person
The last thing that you want to do is to call or send a text message. Don’t be a coward and be sensitive. When you take the time to see them in person, it shows that you care about them, and you respect the sensitive situation that is there.
Plan the things to say
Think about what they mean to you, and think about the parting words that you want to use in order to convey the message that you want to send to them. Mention all the important things and let them know just how much you still love them.
Be honest about how you feel
Be honest about the feelings you have for them, because this might just be the last time you have a chance to tell them what you feel about them. It is ok to be emotional, as long as you talk from your heart.
