When someone loses a spouse, it is extremely hard to know what to write in your sympathy letter. Indeed, sympathy letters are very difficult to write. Although you may have assumptions on how the surviving spouse feels, but you could be wrong since people go through the stages of grief differently. The grieving process includes anger, hopelessness, confusion, apathy and guilt.

When writing a sympathy letter for a spouse’s death, there are some factors that you might consider. You have to take into consideration the relationship, how long they have been married and their religious views as well. Here is an example of a sympathy letter for the death of a spouse.

Dear Mary,

Tim and I were saddened upon hearing of Dean’s passing. We have many warm memories of a gracious and humble person. He was a devoted husband and a god friend to us all. Dean was strong to the end, always thinking of you and the children ahead of himself. We were lucky to have him as a friend. We know how great your sorrow is at this time and our prayers and thoughts are with you and the children.  When the time is right, do not hesitate to call us. We are very willing to help you get through this very difficult time.

With deepest sympathy,
