You received plenty of sympathy cards and letters due to the death of your loved one or family member from friends, relatives, colleagues and acquaintances. Some senders may be close to you while some are not. While you are not obligated to send out thank you cards, it is customary to do so or just to acknowledge the sympathy letter or card sent when you happen to meet the sender.

In general, you are not obligated to write a response to a letter of sympathy or a sympathy cad. People will understand that you have been through a lot and you find it hard to acknowledge to everyone who sent letters. However, most people simply send a thank you card or even take time out to put an ad in the local paper to thank people who express their sympathies. Acknowledging a sympathy letter or card is a nice gesture.

Nevertheless, if you are the type of person who prefers to take some time to express your thankfulness and gratitude personally to each and every person who sends a sympathy card or letter, your letter should contain thinks such as your gratefulness for their support and how their love and care has helped ease the pain and come to terms with the loss you experienced.
