Consoling people who have lost their loved ones is a good way of strengthening friendships and relationships. Most people write sympathy letters or use pre-printed sympathy or condolence cards particularly if they live far from the bereaved. A sympathy card has been used as a formal acknowledgement of the support of the sender during these hard times.

Aside from a sympathy card, a simple yet sincere condolence letter could be sent to a person who has lost a loved one. When writing a condolence or sympathy letter, it is important that you should send it right away. The letter should be hand-written to make it more intimate. Create your wordings by working on a draft letter first and mention the name of the deceased. You could mention a few qualities of the deceased and some enjoyable moments you shared or stories that the bereaved has shared with you.

When you end your sympathy letter, end it with a note of sympathy like ‘I am thinking of you’. Keep in mind that a carefully worded condolence letter is wonderfully comforting to a person who has experienced a loss. Since death and the need to express your sympathy can come unexpectedly, it would be a good idea to have several sympathy cards on hand to send condolences immediately.
