A wife is a best friend - grief quote

Your wife was one of the most incredible people I’ve met in my life. She was always known to uplift the people around her and I am privileged enough to be one of those.

She will never be forgotten and I will truly miss her dearly.

The two of you shared so much of life together. Your relationship was definitely one of a kind. I was witness to how she was your best friend, travel buddy, and partner in everything.

I know that this change will be overwhelming and difficult at times but know that she is always in our hearts.

I will surely cherish all of our best moments. Please take care and call me if you need anything.

I was so sorry to hear about your wife and wish to express my deepest sorrow at this time.

I saw how she was your strength and confidante during tough times. I know she was with you in the sunshine and the storms. She was always so bubbly and always thinking positively.

She never said anything bad about anyone and was always looking at the glass half full. You both are so lucky to have had each other.

I know the love you feel for her will always remain. The memories we have of her will continue.

I hope you find comfort in those around you. Do not feel like you are alone through this. I am just one phone call away if you need someone to talk to. I’m here with you through this

Dear Jonah

It's painful to lose your spouse, your companion. It's such a dark cloud of sorrow and grief for all of us.

Your wife was so dear to us. Sadly, death has snatched her from us. We will always remember her. Send my hugs to the children. I am here for you.


Poem about loss of wife: “Your darling wife, your better half, the one you always kissed.
Was wonderful in every way and will be forever missed"

“Your darling wife, your better half, the one you always kissed.
Was wonderful in every way and will be forever missed

I know the words upon this page will never ever do, but we mean them and just want to say we’re always here for you.”

Dear Gary

The death of your wife is so painful. She had such a fine personality and was a loving person to be with.

We are deeply hurt. We lost a beautiful soul.

Please take heart, and may her beautiful memories comfort you and your family.

We send our love and hugs to you all.

Emily and Gabriel

I feel deep sorrow after hearing the news of your wife's passing away.

'Till death do us apart' - you fulfilled your vows.

I hope you find strength and courage in this dark hour. And I wish that at the end of the day you come out stronger and more resilient.

I am so sorry for your loss. I hope with all my heart that you gain the strength and patience to bear this grief. The words of consolation may not seem to register right now. But one day they will make sense.

Stay put together till then.

My heart goes out to you and your family during this time of sorrow. As you learn to cope with the loss of your wife, take all the time you need to heal from your pain and grief.

We remember her with the highest regard and hold her loving memories forever in our hearts.

I hope one day you’ll find comfort in the little things you both enjoyed most and that you’ll take everything one day at a time. On your most painful days, remember that what you’re going through is tough, but you are tougher.

I cannot imagine the heartache you feel at this time or the sadness you are experiencing, but I’d like to extend my sincerest condolences to you and your family on the passing of your wife. May you never forget her kind spirit or the ways she made each day brighter. The joy she brought to your life and the warmth of her hugs.

Stay strong and remember how many people care about you.

No words can ever express the sympathy and empathy we feel for you at this time, but just know this: that she was loved by many.

We share the smallest part of your grief and feel your pain in our hearts.

I’m sending my deepest, deepest condolences for the passing of your wife. There are no words that can fully convey how sorry I am.

I’m here for you with whatever you may need: a shoulder to cry on, fresh meals, or errands, don’t hesitate to call at any time.

I’m utterly devastated by your wife’s passing. She was one of the most thoughtful people I’ve ever met, and she touched the lives of those around her. I won’t forget how welcoming she was when we first moved into the neighborhood. I was so nervous meeting everyone at that first cookout, but she made me feel so at home with her warm personality.

I wish you strength and comfort at this sad time.
