Dealing with the death of a loved one is not easy. When a person you care about has a death in the family, you have to show your support and concern at this time of mourning. The bereaved may not be willing to have people visiting at first, so you might wan to send a sympathy card to let him or her know that you are thinking of the family at this difficult time.

Get a sympathy card that best conveys your sympathies at this time of grief. You can also personally write a note at the bottom of the last page of the sympathy card. Sign the card with phrases like ‘with my warmest sympathy’, ‘with loving thoughts’. Put a comma after the phrase and write your name directly  underneath.

Address the envelope in handwritten blue or black ink. You should also write your return address on the top left-hand corner, get the appropriate postage stamp in the right-hand corner and the address of the bereaved in the middle of the envelope. If the sympathy card is for a family, like a widow and her  kids, you may address the sympathy card such as ‘Mrs. Jane Richards and Family’.
