Grieving varies from one person to another, thus finding the right messages on a condolence card or letter can be difficult. Naturally, you refrain from saying something that could upset the departed’s family and friends. The best thing that you should do when writing condolence messages is to speak from the heart.

There is a proper etiquette when sending condolence cards or letters since you will be sending your sympathies to a family who is going through very hard times. When you want to include condolence messages in your card, the key is to keep it short and simple. If you knew very well the person who died, you can write about what that person means to you and mention a special memory. Sign your condolence message with your full name so the receiver will know who sent it. If the condolence card comes from your entire family, do not forget to include ‘and family’ after you sign.

It is perfectly all right to express your willingness to help but you should be specific as to what kind of help you can do. Do not mention in your condolence message that you have sent flowers to the funeral. Condolence cards and letters are a great way to let the bereaved know that you are there during this time.
