"And Avraham expired and died at a good age, mature and content and he was gathered to his people." (English translation of verse 8, chapter 25, Parshat Chayai Sarah in the Book of Genesis.)
For many people, one of the most difficult blessings to say with the proper kavana - sincerity -
is the one uttered upon hearing of a person's passing - Baruch Dayan HaEmet - Blessed is the True Judge.
