A sympathy letter is a great way to express your deepest sympathies for the death of a husband. The loss of a husband is a very difficult thing to accept not only to the surviving wife but most of all for the children. When you write a sympathy letter for a husband’s loss, you also have to consider the children he left behind.

When making the sympathy letter, start with a short introduction such as “I am sorry for John’s passing”. Add a short condolence like “please accept my sympathy”. You can add a short paragraph regarding a memorable moment you spent with the departed. This will serve as great comfort to the wife and kids. If you like, you can offer assistance and make it in such a way that it does not appear open-ended. Be specific on things that you can do for your friend and the rest of the family like taking care of the kids, preparing a meal or do errands to the store.

Close your sympathy letter with heartfelt words like “my prayers are with you and the whole family”.  A sympathy letter for loss of a husband should be sent immediately or within two weeks after the death occurs. Finding the right words for a sympathy letter is not easy, but as long as you write from the heart, you can create a sympathy letter that can be read again and again by the members of the family.
