There are many uses of phrases and words. They can be used in writing a sympathy letter or card of a letter of condolence to the family of the bereaved. Sympathy phrases could also be spoken to the family of the departed as part of eulogy or offering sympathies during a funeral. Sympathy phrases can be simple prose or poetry that expresses compassion for the family.

Even when offering sympathy words, even your closest friends could be at a loss for words. Although it is very difficult to say the right sympathy words, there are common phrases that could inspire you to write. Probably the most important role you can play to support a person in grief is to lend a listening ear and of course, sending sympathy card or letter. Remember, despite how short and simple your letter of sympathy may be, this will be treasured for years and years and will serve as a remembrance of the departed.

You need not be a good writer or a poet to be able to write words of sympathy. The key is to write what you feel from the heart. Write as if you are talking face-to-face with the person in grief.
