What To Notice When Composing Condolences Speeches

One of the ways you can provide support to a friend who has lost their loved one is by writing them a note to let them know that you are there for them. Writing condolences messages can be quite tricky for most people. However, by keeping in mind a couple of things, you should be able to come up with a proper note.

You can start by acknowledging the loss. If you know the name of the person who has passed on, then you can refer to them by name. If you were familiar with the person who died, say something nice concerning them.

If you had interacted with the person before, share pleasant memories you have about them. If you have never met the person before then you can share the nice comments that the person may have said about them. You can retell a story about something they did or something the loved.

There is no need to get fancy or write something complicated. A simple letter will just do, as long as it is heartfelt. The recipient of the letter may read your message over and over, so be careful about what you write. The message should be concise.

End your note by letting the person know you can help them in specific ways in case the need arises. Do not just offer to help without stating how or what you can do. This will increase the chance that the person will take you up on you offer in case they need assistance.

Do not delay to send your note. Preferably do it shortly after you have learned about the loss. Take time to write out the note by hand, instead of having it typed. Sympathy messages are best written on plain paper in subtle colors rather than bold colors.
