Need advice, Read Description

Hi everyone. So today, my childhood best friend's (who I have lost touch with after 6th grade), father passed from pancreatic cancer. Back when we were in 5th grade, his dog was hit by a car. To cheer him up, I brought him a pack of starbursts and a magazine about FIFA, and we ate starbursts and talked about video games to take his mind off of it. I should be going over his house this saturday to see him...what should I bring? I kind of want to bring up the old memory of us, but not equate his father passing to his dog dying. (Both of us are sophomores in college, 19y/o)

Just movies and some booze. Talk about the girls in school and the dumbnuts. Just a chill day.

Bring your condolences and ability to listen without trying to give him advice or encouragement on how to proceed or cliche "everything happens for a reason" ******** . As someone who's also lost a loved one at a young age it aggravated me to no end when people who had no concept of the scope of the loss tried to give me advice on how to cope or tried to tell me it was all part of some bigger cosmic plan for my life. Sure, personal loss will probably make it easier to cope with lesser things in the future, but that doesn't mean it sucks any less at the moment. Just be there for your friend, remind him that you're there when he needs you, and simply listen to what he has to say. Leave the inspiring epitaphs for the headstones and heartfelt reflections on mortality for the eulogies, your friend simply needs a shoulder to lean on right now

I have very little experience with this kind of thing, but I'll try to give you some advice. I would suggest bringing nothing unless he asks you to, just be there and talk to him. I doubt anything could take his mind off of his father's passing. I hope this helps, good luck!
