Sympathy Card Messages


Details You Should Learn When Selecting Words For Sympathy

While the market is full of mass-produced greeting cards, you may want to compose your own sentiments to give to someone who has just lost a loved one. When you think about what sentiments to write down, however, you may be confused about how to express yourself without offending or further saddening that individual. These ideas may help you come up with sympathy quotes that will convey your condolences.

It might be suggested that you let your own feelings of grief guide you in this selection process. When people fail to feel anything toward the recipient or the death, they may choose impersonal sentiments or fail to acknowledge the passing at all. However, when you are in mourning, you may find it easier to choose a quote that expresses the depth of the loss better.

You might also wish to send religious sentiments that will give the recipient hope. If your friend or loved one is religious, a quote that expresses a prayer or a passage from the Bible may be appropriate. You might even look in religious texts to select a passage that is right for the occasion.

Another suggestion would be to avoid attempts at being funny. Your friend or relative may love humor any other time of the year. However, a death in the family may be ill timed to be funny or try out new humor. You might be reminded to avoid humorous expressions in your letter or card.

The same ill advice may follow when you send notes that remind the recipient of the nature of the loved one's passing. If the death was violent or sudden, for example, the survivors may wish to get past that information in order to heal. Reminding them of how their relative or friend died could be detrimental.

By keeping these suggestions in mind, you may find it easier to choose sentimental expressions of grief in a time of mourning. Because etiquette might call for you to show your condolences, you may want to give a card or note that has appropriate words included. These tips may help you choose the best quotes for the occasion.
