Sympathy Quotes to Use in your Condolence Letter
Writing a sympathy card is difficult so adding a quote can ease your job. It is hard to phrase the feeling and thoughts and to put them in a card. The important thing is to express yourself in a way that is southing for the one that receives the card.
In this article, we included a list of quotes and phrases that you can combine in a way that seems right to you. The sympathy message should come from the heart and express your real feelings. Honor the loss and express your grief for your friend or close one by writing down your deep feelings.
These quotes should help you get an idea of where to start and should only be a small part of the card. You should write a sentence or two for the person that died in which you either praise them or share a memory of them. Not only will you offer your support but you will also cheer up those who grieve by reminding them of the wonderful person they had and will always remember. It will bring warmth to their heart and they will appreciate your gesture.
If you weren’t that close with the deceased then don’t invent stuff. Just add a quoted that is suitable and tell them you are here if they need you as a shoulder to cry on. Don’t stress out. A lot people are afraid they are going to tell the wrong thing but unless you write a joke there is no chance you can upset those who receive the card.
Also, don’t ever say that what happened was for the best or that you know how the grieving person feels. You can only insult them and make them even sadder. Offer to help with the ceremony but be specific. Offer to bring food or ask them if they need you to do something else for them like an errand etc. You can show them you care by sending them a gift along with the card.
