Aside from the proper etiquette when sending out sympathy cards, what is the most important is the sincerity and depth you expressed. Sympathy cards and letters are not just about rich context and flowery words, but a genuine condolence to express the grief for the loss. Sympathy messages are more difficult to make since the wrong words could hurt the feelings of the bereaved.

Many people are often at a loss for words to say in a sympathy card or letter. Extra care is needed when composing sympathy card messages. When writing your message, it is important to mention a few achievements, successes and strengths of the deceased and include a brief personal story with him or her. Keep in mind that the bereaved is emotionally drained, so keep your letter short. Offer help in some way and put your contact information.

Here are some examples of messages for a sympathy card or letter:

John, Stacy and Family,

Uncle Dave’s passing away left a great void in our lives

He will surely be missed.

Love, Jake, Tanya and Family.

I wish I had the right words to lighten your pain

However, words are sometimes not enough

Please accept my sincerest and deepest sympathies on your loss

You are in my prayers

I consider myself among the lucky ones to be friends with Simon,

I will always cherish his loving memories in my heart,

Remember that we care and love you.

Love, Trina and Family.
