Dear Annie: I am in middle school, and a girl on my softball team was the victim of a terrible incident. Her dad was killed in a car crash caused by a drunk driver. She has been heartbroken ever since.
I constantly wonder if I can do anything to help her. I hate it when people are sad. Should I do anything besides comfort her with words? Should I give her some kind of gift? Everyone else seems to be doing just that. Or should I just not do anything?
