The right sympathy words could go a long way in soothing the bereaved during a difficult time. It is not easy to write a sympathy letter. The first thing to remember when writing one is to write words that come from your heart. Keep in mind that sincerity is hard to fake and lack of sincerity will always show.

When you write a sympathy letter, take your time and do not rush. Your letter will convey to the person who is grieving that he or she is in your thoughts. A sympathy letter should always be hand written. Below is a sample sympathy letter to give you an idea of how you should phrase your letter.

Dear Kyle,

It is very hard to express my sadness for the passing of your brother. I cannot imagine your feelings right now.

Growing up together, you brother was like my own brother. I remember we used to go fishing and he taught us how to bait the hook and learn to drop the line. I will always remember and cherish those moments with your brother.

I know it is very difficult to accept the death of your brother, but keep in mind that death is part of our lives. He lived a full and happy life. I believe that together, we can overcome the loess and come out stronger.

Forever your friend,
