These condolence phrases and sympathy wishes should help you to write a comforting message.
One of the most difficult things is trying to find the right words to express sympathy when someone dear to you loses a loved one. It's so hard to find words of condolence that are meaningful, but not too sentimental, or which don't sound contrived.
The most important thing when writing condolence notes, is to be honest and write from the heart. Say what you are feeling. Make it personal. Don't worry that you are going to upset the person when they get it. They are upset anyway, and they will be greatly comforted by the fact that you are thinking about them whatever you write.
Here are some sample condolences and sympathy phrases to give you inspiration. Just pick one, and perhaps add something like a personal memory or thought of your own. Even if you just write that you are thinking of your friend, or family member, it is enough.
