Funeral Checklist


What You Should Learn When Delivering 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.

Even if you are going to the memorial service, it is still appropriate to offer a letter to the bereaved. The content of your note will mainly depend on your relationship with the family and the deceased. It can be brief or long but should show sympathy, compassion and support.

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.

You can begin your note by stating a memorable event that you and the deceased shared when he or she was still alive. Do not be worried about saying something offensive or making your letter too long. What is important is to express what you are thinking and how you feel, ending it with a few inspiring sentences.

Read and edit your work before sending your note of condolence to the bereaved family. Funeral messages are often given as a handwritten not, in a card, or sent with a bouquet of blossoms. Be sure to offer it in an appropriate way and choose the right kind of flowers for memorial services.
