Funeral Condolences or Messages

At many services these days, funeral condolences or funeral messages are read out by the celebrant.  The words on this page come from real funeral messages which were received by me and my family.  To my dear friends and family who wrote these words, you have our heartfelt thanks.  I wipe a tear from my eye as I read them, knowing that my dear departed one was loved and appreciated.  I hope that some of these snippets will help you write funeral condolences or messages to comfort those you know in their time of grief. 

And please consider using one of our own range of sympathy cards shown below which will help support the upkeep of this site.
