Basics To Expect When Selecting Sympathy Quotes

When someone dies, people often give greeting cards that contain condolences and prayers. However, while these cards may adequately send along a person's sympathies, you may wish to write down or choose your own condolences to express better your sentiments. As you choose sympathy quotes for the occasion, however, you may want to remember some basic criteria to make your quest more successful.

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.

Likewise, you might recall the religious affiliation of your friend or loved one when considering sympathies. If this individual abides by a certain faith, you may write down a prayer or choose a passage from the holy text of that faith. This choice might provide your loved one or friend with hope for the future or strength to move on with his or her life.

When you are selecting sentiments to send, it generally might be advisable to avoid any that are humorous. Many people in mourning do not wish to laugh or act lighthearted when they are missing someone whom they loved. Your card or written expressions might do well to avoid funny jokes or puns.

Likewise, it could be advisable to avoid any mentioning of how the deceased passed. Bringing up details of the death or reminding the recipient of the circumstances could bring unwelcome emotions. Keeping this tact in mind could serve you well.

These strategies could allow you to choose quotes that are suited for a funeral or sending condolences. As you consider what expressions to convey, you might remember some basic tips. These criteria may help you avoid offending someone.
