When someone dies, it could be very difficult to get the right balance.  A long time ago, there was an unspoken code of ethics when someone dies. Mourners knew what to wear and how they behave. In addition to this, mourners live close by to relatives. Nowadays, family and friends are usually scattered throughout the world. Even with high technology, people could still lost touch sometimes.

A condolence note or card could be a source of great comfort to a bereaved when a loved one dies, particularly if he or she lives far away from you. A condolence letter or card is a simple way of letting the grieving person knows that he or she is in your thoughts during this difficult process of mourning and grief.  When you express your condolences, you have to write from the heart and express what exactly you feel.

Your condolence letter or card should be written and sent immediately. Make sure to handwrite your expression of sympathy to make it more personal. If you want to use a pre-fabricated card, you can add a short personal note of sympathy on stationery and tuck it inside the condolence card.  Even if you live far away and impossible for you to be near the bereaved during this time, sending your condolences in the form of a sympathy letter or card is very effective.
