Ask a bereaved parent
Outliving our children is not natural, it is definitely the most difficult thing to ever go through. Death is not something to be afraid of but respect is due to the grievers. I will tell you the top things you can do to support a friend or family member who has lost a child. Not just short term but long term as well as our child is gone forever. Learn what NOT to say as well. Each parent is different but in the end the loneliness is deafening and it is the most hated part. You may not "understand " but you can learn to support. Learning a new set of tools can enhance and deepen your relationship plus preserve it. You can not tippy toe around them forever, hiding from them perpetuates a cycle that is very detrimental. Strengthen your relationship with them, grow with them maybe even change with them in a very positive manner.
