People extend their sympathies and condolences through writing a sympathy card or letter. However, what to write is often a question that is very hard for many people. Writing a sympathy letter or card is a very delicate issue and many are at a loss for the right words to write.

It is of vital importance that when you write a sympathy card, you should write from the heart and express you sincerest sympathies to the bereaved. When it comes to writing a sympathy card, it is better to keep your words of condolences short instead of making them long and elaborate. If the departed is close to you, you could express his or her importance in your life and strengths and achievements in life. Moreover, your sympathy card messages should convey your recognition of the loss of the bereaved.

You should always put your signature at the end of your sympathy card instead of your first name or initials even if you are writing it for your close relatives since there might be other family members who have the same name as you. Furthermore, please refrain from using phrases such as ‘It was his or her time to go’ since this may just offend the grieving person further or could be misunderstood.
