As mentioned many times, I absolutely hate seeing people say "I'll be praying for you." It's a nice thought, but #1...That doesn't mean much to the person if they aren't religious. And #2...What happens when the person you are praying for ends up dying. How are you going to explain that one? Are you just going to say "Well, I tried" and move on?

You shrug and say 'Sometimes God says "No".'

"God wanted him/her."

"It was his/her time to go."

Both I have heard before.

"They're in a better place."

"God needed another angel in heaven."

When people say "I was saved by the lord" it sounds really stupid.

"This is God just testing you/testing your faith." Really? Because a couple of times He almost drove me to suicide. So that was really helpful.
