Losing a child is one of the very painful things to a parent. A child means everything to every parent. Finding the right words to express condolences for the death of child is extremely hard because you have to be extra careful when it comes to bringing up the death of the child in fear of upsetting or hurting the parents some more and the rest of the family as well.

Most people are at a loss for words for a family who lost a child, regardless if the child was stillborn, a few weeks old, one month, one year or twenty-years old. When you write a sympathy letter, you should be more understanding. Refrain from saying that you understand the loss unless you have experienced it before. Even if a parent might not recognize your letter right away, they will be glad for your words of condolences. Always talk about the child by his or her name to put more value to his or her life. The sympathy letter may be given or sent to the birthday of the child or the death anniversary.

Remember that one of the hardest things regarding about a child’s death is to figure out the reason. It never makes sense because a parent should not outlive their children. In your sympathy letter, you should acknowledge the loss and say it in simple terms.
