How can I show sympathy to others?

ANONYMOUS WRITES: I have friends who are going through a really hard time. I want to be a godly encouragement and show genuine sympathy, but I find myself often not knowing what to say. When a close family member died a few years ago, I remember that many people said the wrong thing to us, hurting instead of helping. I don’t want to do that. I know every situation is different, but what are some principles of showing kind, Christian sympathy?
