There is no denying that writing a sympathy letter is very difficult. It is a sad task that you have to undertake some time. A sympathy letter should always be handwritten. When writing one, try to put yourself in the place of the bereaved. If you know the deceased well, you could include a memory or two and describe how you feel. You could also mention the achievements and strengths of the deceased. Extend your condolences to the other family members as well.

Here is an example of a sympathy letter.

My dear Stacy,

My heart went into pieces when I heard of the unexpected death of your husband and I cannot imagine the depth of the sorrow you feel.

I wish for words to sustain and comfort you in your sorrow, but I know there are none that could take away your pain now. My heart aches for you, my friend and I long to embrace you in my arms.

While words may be futile now amidst your sorrow, they are al I can offer you. Please accept my deepest condolences and know that I am holding you and the children in my heart at this difficult and sad time.

With my love,
