Aside from the right etiquette when writing and sending a condolence card, the most important of all is the depth and sincerity that you express. Condolence cards and letters are not just about rich context and flowery words but also a true sympathy when expressing grief. Messages in a condolence card or letter are very difficult to make since wrong words could hurt the bereaved even more.

Many people are usually at a loss for words to say in a condolence letter. Extra care is needed when composing messages on a condolence card. Try mentioning the achievements and strengths of the departed and include a brief story about him or her. Do not forget that grieving persons are emotionally drained, so it is important to make your letter short. Offer some kind of help if you like and do not forget to include your contact details.

The following are sample condolence messages you can write in a condolence card:

Kian, Nicole and Family,

The passing of Nick left a great void in our lives

We will surely miss him.

Love, Tim, Lenny and family

I wish I had the correct words to help ease the pain

But sometimes words are not enough

Please accept my sincerest condolences on your loss

I am praying for you

I am lucky to get to know Bill,

His memories will be cherished forever,

Remember that we care and love you.

Love, Tina and Family.
