There's no magic formula here, dj. Sometimes its worth saying in words some of what you fel sure he ought to be able to take for granted, and just say that you're so sorry things are so difficult for his family right now, that you're there for him and ready to talk over things whenever he wants to ( and not to talk when he doesn't want to ) and would like him to let you know whenever there is anything you can do to help them.
