      Just...be...there. In the silence, you can say a lot and leave room for them to maybe share their heart...or not. Presence is the very best present you can give. If you cannot be there - a simple 'Thinking of you' is perfect' NEVER invite them to CALL YOU...IF...they need anything. Not knowing more of the situation - if your friend needs an outing - call and invite them to go on a drive, or if they'd like to go get an ice cream with you that you're craving...something 'normal'. Again, just the act of being 'with' them and giving them a chance to breathe. Reminding them that you love them and are there for them.
