You may find that condolence sayings are a good way to help someone say their goodbyes.

There are many resources that can help you get the right message across. Sympathy quotes, bereavement sayings or even condolence phrases may be helpful to you.
Donít be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends.
The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone.
Little Foxes, 1866
Love here on earth, Love beyond the grave, There are no roads, My love for you canít pave.
Heaven is a place nearby, so thereís no need to say goodbye.
We only part to meet again.
The reason it hurts so much to separate is because our souls are connected.
Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook
You and I will meet
Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.

Missing someone gets easier every day because even though it's one day further from the last time you saw each other, it's one day closer to the next time you will.
Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
Theodor Seuss Geisel, attributed
When someone is going through a loss, it will take time for them to see the light. We all need to venture through the stages of grief and saying goodbye is usually part of those stages. Acceptance is a big part and when reality sets in, they will need you to be there for them. So do what you can and be who you are. Send your thoughts and sympathies saying how much you are there for them.
