People usually extend their condolences and sympathies by writing a condolence letter or card. Nonetheless, things to write are usually a question that is very difficult for most people. Writing a condolence letter or card is a very sensitive issue and many are at a loss for words on what they should write.

When you write a condolence letter, it is necessary to express what you feel and your sincerest sympathies to the bereaved. When writing a condolence letter, you should you’re your words short rather than making them elaborate and long. If you are close to the deceased, you could express his or her importance in your life such as achievements in life and strengths. Furthermore, the messages in a condolence letter should express your recognition of the loss.

Always put your signature at the end of your condolence letter rather than writing only your first name or your initials. Even if you are writing a condolence letter for your relatives, there might be other family members with the same name as you. Always remember not to write words such as ‘it was his or her time’ because you never know how this would be received or offend the bereaved.
