How To Write a Condolence Letter
Condolence letters can be quite simple to write, but not for all people. Some people may find it quite challenging because the really do not know what to say. No matter what you say, you just want to keep in mind that your words are meant to comfort the person or persons that are in need of sympathy.
You should never write more than one page. You may want to consider keeping it light and short as much as you can. You shouldn't mention anything about how the person died or how much she or he has suffered before they died. Keep this is mind when you begin to write your letter. Always keep a positive memory of the deceased. You can also bring up how much of a positive influence they were in your life. Anything that goes along on that note is acceptable for a condolence letter.
If you remember something that the deceased said to you about his or her family in a positive way, you can mention that as well. Do not talk about your own grief, instead mention that you share the grief with everyone who is suffering. You must keep in mind that this is not all about you. It is more about the family of the deceased. Let them know that they have the strength to carry on.
Finally, you may want to end the letter and let them know that you are of assistance if they may need you. If you can think of something specifically that you think you may be able to do, you can mention that at the end of the letter. Families need as much help as they can get during times like this. It is all about knowing there are people out there for support, who love and care for them.
