Sympathy messages are often difficult to express, but so important to convey. Our beautiful collection of sympathy messages can help put your feelings into words. Please feel free to use any of our sympathy messages when sending a sympathy card. These are just a few samples of what to write in a sympathy card. Also, when you write a sympathy card, be sure to include the name of the deceased when possible.
WHAT TO WRITE IN A SYMPATHY CARD:
It has been said, "Nothing you love is lost. Not really. People always go away sooner or later. You can't hold them anymore than you can hold the moonlight. But if they have touched you, if they are inside you, then they are still yours. The only things you ever really keep are the people and memories you hold in your heart."
Your life was a blessing,
Your memory a treasure...
You are loved beyond words,
And missed beyond measure.

We follow a pathway that has no end
as we travel through life day by day.
Together with those who are dear to our hearts
and are there by our side, come what may
But sometimes a loved one must travel ahead
for reasons that aren't always clear.
And we're left behind to continue along,
missing one who is no longer here.
And while it may seem that the pathway has stopped,
it merely has rounded a bend,
And our loved one goes on to a much brighter place
down the pathway that has no end.
My heart is reaching out to you,
For what you're going through;
I'm thinking of you frequently
And praying for you too.
If there is something I can do,
Anything at all,
Think of me thinking of you,
And don't hesitate to call -
More sympathy is with you now
Than words alone can tell...
For those who share your friendship
Share your recent loss as well.
"What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget"
I can’t comprehend just how sad you must feel
For the loss of someone you love.
This sorrowful time must still feel unreal
And you’re looking for strength from above.
I hope, from my heart, that your pain will decrease,
That your spirit will gain strength again,
And I pray that your faith will create inner peace And that God will send blessings--Amen.
When someone you love becomes a memory,
the memory becomes a treasure.
Life can never stay the same, no matter how we try.
Our hands can never stop the clock of life from ticking by.
But love remains unchanged in the care of sorrowful hearts,
For as the love of this life surrenders, the love of memory starts."
"The mention of my mother's name may bring tears to my eyes, but it never fails to bring music to my ears. If you are really my friend, please don't keep me from hearing the beautiful music. It soothe's my broken heart and fills my soul with love."
The sorrow of the faithful
is not that of permanent loss,
but the tender sense of sadness
that comes in saying good-bye for now
to someone we love.
May today's sorrow give way
to the peace and
comfort of God's love.
There's a very special garden, where the trees of memory grow.
Nurtured by the kindness, and concern that good friends show.
The roots are cherished memories, of good times in the past.
The branches tender promises, that souls endure and last.
It's a place of peace and beauty, where bright new hopes can start,
It's memory's lovely garden that soothes the hurting heart.
I’d like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an after glow
of smiles when life is done,
I’d like to leave an echo
whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing
times and bright and
I’d like the tears of those who
grieve, to dry before the sun,
Of happy memories that I leave
When life is done.
~ Helen Lowrie Marshall
May sympathy from those who care, bring comfort to your heart-
And may you know that those you love are never far apart...
May it help and console you to remember often too,
That many comforting thoughts are very close to you.
When the joys are still remembered
But the sorrow has quietly gone,
There will always be a special place
In the heart where love lies on.
We wanted to offer our love, prayers and support to all of you. Please know that God is caring for you through the hands and hearts of others.
I wish you the gift of a memory whenever you need to know,
the one you love still walks with you wherever you may go.
May the constant love of friends and family soften your sadness, may the cherished memories bring you moments of comfort, and may lasting peace surround your hearts.
