During a difficult time, it can be hard to find the right words to say or do things for someone who has lost a loved one, terrified of making things worse. But just simply expressing our sympathy and offering comfort can be a source of solace and support for them. There are many ways to show you care, and one way to do that is by sending sympathy flowers with heartfelt messages.
Here’s a guide for the sympathy flowers you can send, a few pointers for writing a sympathy message, and samples to help you come up with your very own.
Pointers for writing a sympathy message:
- Keep it simple and mean it. The most important thing is that it comes from your heart.
- If you know the person who has passed away but not their loved ones, don’t forget to mention how you know them and your relationship with them.
- If you know a person who has a loved one who passed away, offering practical help might be appreciated since it will involve a lot of administration. Doing that while going over strong emotions can be very hard for a person.
Sample sympathy messages:
- “In this time of sorrow, please know that I offer my support and love to you and your family. [Name of the deceased] was a good friend, an incredible person to everyone. They will be remembered.”
- "As you go through this challenging journey of grief, know that we, your friends and family, are here for you and you can lean on for support. Let us know how we can help you carry the burden.”
- "Wishing you peace and strength during this difficult time. [Name] touched the lives of many and will be remembered with love."
- "I can't imagine the depth of your sorrow, but I want you to know that I am here for you.”
- "I'm deeply saddened to hear about your loss. Please know that my thoughts and heart are with you during this difficult time."
