What To Expect When Considering 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.

Include some memories of the deceased person. Mention positive memories rather than negative ones. If you had never interacted with the person before but you had had your friend talk fondly about them, refer to the stories your friend shared with you. This will mean a lot to the bereaved to know that their loved one was loved by others.

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.

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.
