Words Of Comfort


Basic Details To Expect When Sending Funeral Messages

If someone you know has just died, you should visit the wake to show respect. If you are far away and cannot visit the service, you could send a letter of sympathy. There are several ways to send funeral messages to the family of the deceased. Send a short note with a token showing empathy.

You can send a sympathy card even if you attend the wake. Depending on how close you were to the person who just passed away or your relationship with the family of the deceased, your letter can be short or long. It can be simple with a few words that express sympathy or a bit longer.

Take note that your letter may be read at the service by the family of the deceased. Considering this, it might be wise to write something that is not too lengthy. Make sure that it is also not too curt and short that your message will appear cold and unfeeling. Show that the deceased was someone special to you.

If you are sending a card that already has content, it is still a good idea to write something in your own words. Your note should express sorrow yet offer comfort. This can be difficult to achieve with just a few sentences. It can also be hard to begin a letter of sympathy.

A good tip is to start a note with a memorable event that you shared with the deceased. Do not be too concerned about saying the wrong things or making the letter too long. Just write what is on your mind and what you feel in your heart. Finish off your letter with an uplifting paragraph.

Make sure you edit and proofread the draft before sending it to the family of the deceased. Funeral messages can be written in cards, as handwritten letters, via email, or with a bouquet of blossoms. Make sure that the presentation of your card or flowers are appropriate for the occasion.
