The news of someone’s passing, whether a family or friend, often move you to send condolences in the form of a sympathy card. Nevertheless, sending one is often a very difficult thing to do, particularly since during this time you are often at a loss for words. The death of a loved one often makes one very sensitive and vulnerable to the actions and words around. If you are going to send out a sympathy card, you should send one that does not cause further pain to the grieving persons.

When choosing a sympathy card, keep it simple without a lengthy explanation. Express your condolences and do not forget to refer to the persons’ passing as a ‘loss’. Do not hesitate to share your own memory or experience about the deceased so that the recipient will realize how much their loved one meant to you and allow them to smile or laugh at the memory. If the deceased person had been suffering a long illness, acknowledge this illness and state that you pray for comfort in the knowledge that the dead is no longer in pain.

If you want to offer assistance, go ahead and say it. However, you should be specific on what ways you could and would be willing to help. At the end of the card, choose the appropriate phrases. For instance, you can say, “I’m praying for you”, “With deepest sympathy” or “With Heartfelt Condolences”. Keep the message in the card short and always remember to avoid words such as “I know how you feel” or “It’s all for the best”. Do not forget that the grieving process is different from person to person, these words might just offend the family instead of console them during this time.

Words of Sympathy

When we hear the news of someone’s passing, whether family, friend, or acquaintance, we are often moved to send our condolences in the form of a sympathy card. Even though etiquette says we should send a card immediately this is often the most difficult time to write, since the pain of loss is so new.
In today’s electronic age some people are using e-mail cards as an alternative to the traditional sympathy card. While this has come to be accepted, sending a handwritten letter on personal stationary or an appropriate card is still preferred. Paper cards or letters can be collected and put into a keepsake album or box, or left on display at the grieving person’s home as a source of comfort. The specially selected card gives added depth to your expression of condolence. Humorous cards are not recommended as sympathy cards.
The hardest part of sending a sympathy card is that words do not convey well the depths of comfort you wish to send your family, friends, or acquaintances during their time of sorrow.
Handwritten sympathy cards and condolence cards can be a very important part of the grieving and healing processes for those who have lost a loved one.
