One of the most difficult times that we will encounter in our lives is the loss of our loved ones. Hearts are heavy and everything seems to be gloomy for the bereaving party. You can’t just sit there and do nothing. Of course, you would want to encourage as much as possible and give them support in whatever way you can. Moreover, it will be very heart-warming on their end if you will express your sympathy for their loss.

Condolences cards go handy with flowers to show that you do care. Nonetheless a simple note or card will do. It doesn’t have to flowery and put in so many words. And it would be best if you write it with your own words for a sense of personal touch in expressing your sentiments. Nevertheless, if words are not that easy to grasp you don’t know where to start, you might want to consider our few samples of condolences messages below.
