Besides the right etiquette when sending a sympathy card, the most important thing of all is the sincerity and depth that you expressed. Sympathy letters and cards are not only about flowery words and rich context but also a genuine sympathy to express your grief over the loss. Sympathy messages are harder to make because the wrong words could offend or hurt the feelings of the bereaved.

Most people are often at a loss for words to say in a sympathy letter. Utmost care is a must when composing messages on a sympathy card or letter. When writing a message, it is vital to mention the strengths and successes of the deceased, a few achievements and include a short personal story with the deceased. Bear in mind that a bereaved is drained emotionally, so it is necessary to keep your letter short. You could offer some help in some way and include your contact information.

Below are several examples of messages for a sympathy letter or card:

Nick, Sherry and Family,

Uncle Bill’s passing left a huge void in our lives

He will really be missed.

Love, John, Mary and Family.

I wish I had the right words to ease your pain

Nevertheless, sometimes words are not enough

Please accept my deepest and sincerest sympathy on your loss

You are in my prayers

I consider myself among the lucky individuals to be acquainted with Roger,

His loving memories will always be cherished in my heart,

Remember that we love and care for you.

Love, Kathryn and Family.
