Question about United States

How would you do in such conversation if you were B…(And surely you could be A if there's something to change for A's sentence)

A: I lost a friend yesterday.
B: I'm sorry to hear that.

So I've heard it's better to end the conversation there, being "indifferent" because they wouldn't want to pry. (How common is this mindset?)

Still feel like there's something missed in B's part, and the conversation is probably going to end weirdly/pause.

Unless there's something to be edited for A's part?

When would you be like B or justify B's one sentence conclusion?
