Notes of sympathy are written to console a grieving person due to the passing of a beloved. When it comes to writing notes of sympathy, let your thoughts dwell on the person you are sending the letter to. Do not dwell on the details of the illness or the manner of death since this will only add to the pain of the bereaved. Avoid using quotes from scriptures and poets endlessly.

Write as simply as you can and from the heart. All you nee to do is to put your feelings to paper. You may include in your note anything you can do to help the person in grief. Nonetheless, if you are going to make the offer, make sure to follow up on it several days later through a phone call. Below are some notes of sympathy you could use.

1. May the memories of your father comfort you.

2. May your soul and heart find peace and comfort.

3. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

4. May love be on you.

5. I deeply sympathize in your loss.

6. All my sympathy and thoughts are with you.

7. I would be grateful if I can be of service.

8. If I only knew how to fill words with love and send to you.

9. We pray for you and the entire family.

10. If love and thoughts could help you, you will have the strength I can give.
