18. They're lucky, in a way.

Wonder how they’d feel if they were on the receiving end of all those trite little “thoughts and prayers” cliches.

What kind of comfort would they find in reflexive banalities like that?

I don’t know if I’d find any real comfort in that. I guess I’d understand with people I know who have feelings but don’t know how to express them well. But there are some from whom I might not welcome meaningless “thoughts and prayers” in the first place.
