The best way to write a sympathy card is to be genuine and simply say what you feel

When somebody dies, it could be real hard to get the right balance. In olden times, there was an unspoken code of ethics during this time. Mourners are aware of what they wear and how to behave. Furthermore, mourners live near to relatives. Today, friends and family are often scattered around the world. Despite the high technology, people still lost touch sometimes.

A condolence letter or card is a source of great comfort to the person in grief when a loved one passes, especially if he or she lives far away. The car or letter is a simple gesture of letting the bereaved knows that he or she is in your thoughts at the hard process of grief and mourning. When expressing condolences, you should write from the heart and say what you really feel.

The condolence letter or card should be written and sent right away. Make certain to handwrite your condolences to give it a more personal touch. If you prefer to use pre-fabricated card, you could add a short note of sympathy on stationery and tuck it inside the card.  Even if you live far and would not be possible for you to be near the bereaved at this time, sending your condolences in the form of a condolence card of letter is very effective.
