A condolence letter or card should be brief and simple. While there are no words to comfort the family during a death, sympathy words could help give them strength to face this vary hard situation. Thus, it is necessary to send a condolence letter or card to the family of the departed.  Although most condolence letters or cards already contain messages, it is good to write some words of sympathy in your own words.

Keep your sympathy words short than making them elaborate or long. If the deceased is closely related to you, the condolence letter or card should express the importance of the person in your life. Nevertheless, if you are not closely related to the deceased, you could simply write a short but sincere condolence letter or card.

Condolence letter or card messages should express your recognition of the recipient. Remember to put your signature at the end of your letter than just writing your first name or initial because there might be family members with the same name. In a condolence letter or card, avoid using words like ‘It was his/her time to go’, because this will only add to the grief and difficulty experienced by those left behind.
