What do you say to someone who's Dads just died?

My American cousin's dad just died, and she is coming to visit soon. What do I say to her? I really don't want to offend her of anything.

Just say "I'm sorry". She'lll/he'll know what you mean. Then just change the subject.

Say "I'm really sorry for your loss" then spend a little time comforting them but usually a person will give off a vibe for what they need/ want.

I don't think you should saw anything unless she wants to talk about it, act normal but try not to be too cheery because that may offend/annoy her

Avoid the subject of you feel like they don't want to talk about it.
