Before you write a sympathy card, take the time to reflect on your memories and jot down some stories that illustrate the unique qualities of the deceased. You can begin your note by expressing your sadness. Then follow with your remembrances, sharing your favorite stories.
While it’s caring to express your condolences, it’s the memories of a loved one that bring solace to the bereaved. When someone dies, all we have left are memories and it's these shared experiences that are sure to bring some warmth during a difficult time.
