Sympathy notes are written to console a person who is grieving the passing of a loved one. When you write sympathy notes, allow your thoughts to dwell on the person you are sending it to. Avoid dwelling on the illness details or the manner of death, this will only add pain to the bereaved. Refrain from using quotes endlessly from poets and the scriptures.

As much as possible, write simply and from the heart. Put your feelings to paper, that is all. Include in your note if there is anything you can do to help the bereaved. However, if you make that offer, make certain to follow up on it a few days later with a phone call. Sample sympathy notes include:

1. May your heart and soul find comfort and peace.

2. May the memories comfort you.

3. Our prayers and thoughts are with you.

4. May love be upon you.

5. I deeply sympathize with you in your loss.

6. All my thoughts and sympathy are with you.

7. If I can be of any service, you know how grateful I would be.

8. If I only knew how to fill words with love and send them to you.

9. If thoughts and love could help you, you will have all the strength that I can give.

10. We pray for you and the family.
