Babs ... Don't take to it heart. My guess is that they probably feel a bit uncomfortable. Unless it was one of my "close" friends.. I usually don't ask about people who have been fired or laid off.
Some might think it would not be a good idea to been seen as having empathy for the laid off worker.... fearing that they might be next in line.
I wish you the best of luck. As you go on interviews, research the company. Ask questions. Especially if it is an office type position. If you ask what other jobs there are in the department, etc, That might spur the interviewer to think of you for other positions also, if you don't get the job. Also, it would show you as having more ambition to move ahead than the average joe.
