During tough times, the right words of sympathy could go a long way to soothe a bereaved. It is never easy to write a sympathy letter. When writing one, the first thing that you should keep in mind is to write sympathy words from the heart. Remember that sincerity is difficult to fake and lack of it will show no matter what.

Take your time when writing a sympathy letter. Your letter will show the person in grief that you are thinking of him or her and your words are sincere. Always write a sympathy letter by hand. Here is one sample letter of sympathy to give you an idea of what to write.

Dear Neil,

There is no way to express my sadness at your father’s loss. I cannot imagine how you must feel right now.

Growing up, you know that your father was like a father to me as well. I remember the fishing trips he took us with. He even taught me how to fish, like baiting the hook and learning where to drop the line. I will always cherish those memories with your father.

I know it is very hard to accept your father’s death, but remember that death is a natural part of our existence. He has lived a wonderful life. Together, I believe we can overcome this loss and come out better for it.

Your friend forever,
