This is a question Saying the Unsayable

Freddie Woo tugged our coat and asked: Have you ever had to tell someone they had BO? Had to break dreadful news to somebody? Tell us how you broke through the cringe barrier

I don't know how to say this but...
A genuine (and tragic) story from a friend of mine.

Friend had a younger sister who was on a gap year in Africa. There was a terrible accident and she was killed. A lady policy officer was given the task of breaking the news to the family. The family kept in contact with the police officer so found out later that she was junior at the time and this was the first bit of bad news she had had to break.

Anyway, policelady drives into the drive of the parents house ready to break the news to the unsuspecting couple. An incident occurs in the dirveway leading to the following conversation being started by a very distraught policelady: "I'm [sob] terribly sorry but I have some bad news for you. Please can I come in. [Sob] I don't know where to start but I'm afraid your daughter has been involved in an accident and we've been informed that she was killed. [sob] I'm also sorry to have to say that I have just run over your cat. [Sobs uncontrollably]..."

I can give you a name and confirm that his sister died in Africa
If my friend chose to make up a story about the tragic death of his sister then yes I have been duped. I can't see why he would. It's not just something I heard down the pub. I know him, his deceased sister and his cat - it was admittedly some time after his sister was killed that I bumped into him again. There you go. (And the family did keep in contact - I think the police lady came back personally because she thought she'd made a balls up of it and, understandably, felt bad).
