For parents who grieve the death of a child, there are no words that can convey the great pain they feel.  What is worst is that friends and acquaintances would attempt to avoid grieving parents due to loss of what to say and what to do. Offering expressions of solace for the passing of a child could be overwhelming, but this is the time that parents who grieve need the most.

You might be at a loss for words to express your sorrow in a sympathy letter.  Nothing can make the grieving person feel better at this time, but your letter will let him or her know that you care and thinking of him or her. One of the hardest things when it comes to a child’s death s the reason for it. Parents should not outlive their kids. The best approach to compose a sympathy letter in this case is not to give reasons or explanations.

Here are some words you can write in your sympathy letter.

1. I’m here to listen.

2. I can’t imagine the pain you feel now.

3. I’m very sad for you.

4.  I’m thinking of you at this time.

5.  It’s all right to be sad or angry around me.

6. Take all the time that you need.

Here are some things you should avoid writing.

1.  It’s God’s will.

2. God needs him/her more.

3. I know your feelings.

4. He/she is in a good place now.

5. At least you have other children.
