What To Expect When Composing Condolences Words

One of the ways you can express your compassion to someone who has lost their loved one is by sending them a sympathy note. Even though writing condolences messages is quite uncomfortable for most people, such a note can be quite comforting for the bereaved persons. Taking time to write them a note shows that you care about them.

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.

You can share memories of the person if you knew them. Be specific about the memory or loss that you share. Opt for a positive or neutral thought. If the deceased was close or special to you in a certain way, let your friend know. The survivors will appreciate the fact that their loved one meant something special to other people too.

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.

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.

Try and send your note within a reasonable period of time. This can be a within a week or two of their loved one passing on. Instead of typing the letter, write it using pen and paper. Use simple stationary, with a plain background. The messages can be written or tucked in between a sympathy card.
