Losing a father is unimaginably difficult for a son or daughter. Here are examples of sympathy messages that you can use if you are writing a condolence card.

In Anglo-Saxon countries, and not only there, it is a very popular, widespread custom to send a condolence card to a family that has suffered the loss of a loved one. Writing a sympathy card, however, is not easy. We may not know either what to say or how to say it. We may be afraid to say something wrong or to not fully express what we are feeling.

Do not fear, regardless of the words you use the kindness behind the gesture of sending a card itself will be greatly appreciated. Additionally, it is not necessary to write a lot. If you did not know the deceased well, some well-written lines will be enough to show affection and empathy towards the family that is in mourning.

Examples

We are very sorry for your loss.

With heartfelt condolences.

Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

I am very sorry to hear about your grandmother.

Like you, we also feel the lack of John’s presence.

Thinking about you and wishing you comfort and peace.

The news of your father’s death greatly saddened me. My heartfelt condolences.

Words of Appreciation

If you knew the deceased well, adding words of appreciation about an aspect of their personality or sharing what you remember about them can make a difference and offer comfort to the recipients. Adding something special and positive about the deceased that their relatives recognize as part of their character can help them to conserve good memories.

Examples

I will not forget your dad’s smile and great sense of humour. He made every moment fun and enjoyable.

What an amazing person! I am grateful to have had the privilege of knowing him / her.

Your mum was a great friend of mine. I will forever cherish our precious memories.

Your sister was an amazing lady and a wonderful teacher. All the good things she did will always be remembered by those who had the pleasure of knowing her.

To Conclude the Message

End your card with a short and precise closing, then add your signature.

Examples

With my deepest condolences,

With condolences,

Thinking of you,

Sharing your sadness,

Please, accept our condolences,

Keeping you in our prayers,

Flowers

Generally, flowers for the funeral are sent by the closest relatives. These are large floral arrangements often decorated to transmit a message about the deceased person or about the relationship between the deceased and those who sent the flowers.

In case you are thinking of sending flowers to the home of the family in mourning, these floral arrangements are smaller and may include the same flowers that were used at the funeral: gladiolus, snapdragons, lilies, chrysanthemums, carnations, and roses. There is, in fact, no colour used more than others in Anglo-Saxon countries. Arrangements with lilac, yellow, and pink flowers are appropriate, while white is always considered classic as well as a symbol of loyalty and purity. Even potted plants are considered a pleasing detail that will last longer than a bouquet of flowers.

Now, if the deceased was of the Jewish faith, it is likely that the family would observe “Shiva” at their home for seven days. During this week, friends and relatives go to the family home to provide comfort and share in their pain. In this case, sending flowers is not suitable, but baskets of food and fruit are sent instead.

These have been some useful tips for sending condolence messages in English. Nevertheless, before writing your card, take a moment to think about the deceased person, their loved ones, their religious beliefs, and their culture. If you are interested in learning more about Anglo-Saxon culture, you will definitely find the ABA English course interesting. We offer 144 video classes and well as short films drawn from real-life episodes that will help you learn about various aspects of British and American culture.

What is a Condolence Message?

A condolence message is a heartfelt or sympathetic message you send to someone in a time of sadness, specifically, during the time of death.

When someone loses a loved one, one of the necessary things you have to do is show sympathy. Condolence messages are the most acceptable way to show sympathy towards the bereaved. i.e., Say or send a simple, heartfelt condolence message that conveys your sympathy and if you can, be there for the person.

Things You Should Never Say to a Grieving Person

Although your condolence messages or words of encouragement might not be enough to cheer up a grieving friend, careless words could hurt them further.

Here are a couple of things to avoid saying to a grieving person:

  • Don’t expect a thank you.

Touching condolence message on death of a Child

Losing a child is like a sword through the heart a thousand times, it is death by a thousand paper cuts, and it is not uncommon for marriages to crash shortly after the death of a child.

Condolence message on death of mentor

These are sincere condolences message you can send to the family of a late teacher, mentor, boss, principal or any figure of authority in your life.

If you have a good memory of your mentor, you can share it with the bereaved to recognize the role the deceased played in your life.

For example,

“I will always remember the day; he met me crying in the hallway because of some trouble at home. He took me home and told me to wait in the car; I saw him have a word with my mother and from that day, my parents never fought again, well at least not in front of me.”

Stories like this can offer some comfort to the grieving family.

These are 10 condolence messages you can offer someone who lost a teacher or a mentor:

  • “I was deeply saddened to hear your loss. My deepest sympathies to your family for this great loss.”
  • “I pray that in this difficult time, the love of God shelters you and mend the pain as you move forward.”
  • “May God put him in a special place from where he will be watching us, the people who loved and cherished him. Accept my deepest condolences.”
  • “Death can never take a good man away, for, in the hearts of the people he inspired, the legacy remains and continuous throughout generations. He was a great teacher and father to many and may his soul find eternal rest.”
  • “In this time of grief, your family is in my thoughts and prayers; I will forever be grateful for the impact she had on my life growing up. Please accept my deepest sympathies.”
  • “I will forever cherish his leadership and guidance. I will carry him forever in my heart. Please accept my heartfelt condolences.”
  • “My deepest condolences go out to your family. I will miss the presence of the truly lovable and kind person she was.”
  • “May the care and love of those around you provide comfort and peace needed to get through the days ahead. My sincere condolences.”
  • “It’s so sad that my great mentor is gone so soon. I pray his family finds the love and strength needed to forge ahead in his huge absence. My deepest sympathies.”
  • “Accept my deepest sympathies. His dedicated tutorship and unrelenting discipline formed the bulk of my life’s foundation.”

Sincere Condolence Messages on loss of a pet

For some people, the death of a pet could sting more than the loss of a friend. I’m not making this up; some pet owners are more attached to their pets than humans.

This means when someone loses a pet, a condolence message on the loss of the pet is in order.

Here are some sample condolence messages on the loss of a pet:

  • “I’m very saddened to hear of your loss. she was a cute cat.”
  • “I was saddened to hear that you lost your furry family member.”
  • “I am praying for you as you mourn the loss of your family member, playmate, and friend.”
  • “Your dog was downright the cutest and best dog, I’ve ever seen. Accept my sincere sympathies.”
  • “Accept my condolences on the loss of your pet; I know you shared many beautiful memories together.”
  • “My heart goes out to you and your family as you grieve the loss of a very lovable member of your family.”
  • “Losing a pet is never easy, and it reminds us of the huge role they played in our lives, cherish the memories.”
  • “I am so sorry for you had to put down your dog. I admire your bravery and love; you are a great pet owner.”
  • “My deepest sympathy on the loss of your dog, I’ve known that dog for as long as I’ve known you, she will be missed.”
  • “Accept my deepest, and heartfelt condolences on the loss of your pet, who I know is also a member of your family, may the beautiful memories of your pet, comfort you in what must be a sad period for you.”

When someone loses a pet, avoid making statements such as “You can always get another pet.” It is equivalent to telling a boy who just lost his father, your mother will remarry soon and you will no longer miss your father. Stupid right? Yes, it is insensitive, and you should never say or imply that to a pet owner.

Remember, the best condolences message is one that conveys your sympathy.
