Basics You Should Expect 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 begin the note by admitting that a loss has indeed occurred. If you knew the deceased, use their name in the letter whenever referring to them. If you know any special qualities that the person had, mention some of 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.

Be simple and go straight to the point. No need to try and come up with something fancy like a poem or special message. A heartfelt note will be appreciated more. Since the recipient may get many notes during this time, they may not have the time to read through a long message.

You can end the letter by letting the person know that you are available for them. Do not offer general help, instead be specific about how you want to help. You can also let them know that they are in your thoughts and prayers. If possible, visit your friend and hand deliver the note to them.

Sympathy notes should be written and sent as soon as possible after the loss. If you can, hand write the note instead of typing it out. This gives it a more personal touch. If you had bought a sympathy card from the store, add a personal note to it and include it in the card.
