Ever felt at a loss for words, especially when it comes to writing a sympathy card?
You are not alone. Many of us struggle to write the right words to those who are grieving. This guide will give you some questions and thoughts to aid you in writing the right words, especially in when someone has lost a child or friends have lost a loved one to suicide.
We aim to write words that will echo our sympathies to the family or friend suffering loss. And when we think about horrific events like 9/11, which took over 3,000 lives in one day—there are so many wild emotions rendering us speechless. Finding the words that mirror our heart might come easier if we consider the following:
1. Our relationship with the bereaved
2. Our relationship to the deceased
3. The religious faith of the bereaved and deceased
4. The circumstances (was it sudden) surrounding the death of the deceased
, what to say to grieving people
, what to write on a sympathy
, encouraging others in grieve and loss
, what to say when someone has a misscarriage
