Sending a condolence letter following a death is an old tradition that remains very beneficial to those who lost a loved one. For most people, sending condolences is almost reflexive after the news of a death of a friend or family member. Instinctively, people want to reach out, offer support and help to the bereaved.

A well-written condolence letter is written from the heart and written as though the writer is speaking near the grieving person.  This letter should be sent within two weeks of the death in stationery or a condolence card. This kind of letter is a permanent reminder of the support you offer to the person in grief. One of the main advantages of sending condolences in letter form is that the bereaved can keep it and reread it anytime they like. This serves as a remembrance to the beloved departed.

A condolence letter sent after the death of a loved one are treasured remembrances and tangible reminders of the comfort received from relatives, friends and colleagues following the loss. These letters will be treasured for many years. Sending a condolence letter is a good gesture of friendship, support and encouragement during a very difficult time.
