Writing a sympathy message can be very difficult because many of us are afraid of saying the wrong thing. The truth is that a personal note letting someone know you care will mean a lot, even if you're not quite sure what to say.
Just keep in mind:
-It is always a good idea to share a memory of the deceased if you knew them personally.
-Be careful about saying things like "I know how you feel" or "It was for the best."
-If you offer help, be specific about what you can do, like bringing food or running errands.
Comfort the hearts of the grieving by dedicating a tree that lives on forever.

All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.
*A great soul serves everyone all the time. A great soul never dies. It brings us together again and again. ~Maya Angelou
*Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy. ~Author Unknown
*When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.
*Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. In fact, it is always in proportion. That's its balance.
*Life is eternal and love is immortal; And death is only a horizon, And a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.
*Those we love and lose are always connected by heartstrings into infinity.
*I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. ~Leo Buscaglia
*When you lose someone you love, you gain an angel you know.
*Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower,
We will grieve not, rather find strength in what remains behind.
*Like a bird singing in the rain,
let grateful memories survive in time of sorrow.
~Robert Louis Stevenson
*When the heart grieves over what is has lost, the spirit rejoices over what it has left.
*The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart. ~
*Unable are the loved to die. For love is immortality. ~Emily Dickinson
*Let children walk with Nature, let them see the beautiful blendings and communions of death and life, their joyous inseparable unity, as taught in woods and meadows, plains and mountains and streams of our blessed
star, and they will learn that death is stingless indeed, and as beautiful as life.
*To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.
*Grieve not, nor speak of me with tears, but laugh and talk of me as if I were beside you. I loved you soóit was heaven here with you.
~Isla Paschal Richardson
*There are no goodbyes for us.
Wherever you are, you will always be in my heart.
*He spoke well who said that graves are the footprints of angels.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
*Some people come into our lives, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never the same.
~ Author Unknown
*While we are mourning the loss of our friend,
others are rejoicing to meet him behind the veil.
*As you comprehend this profound loss, let yourself cry knowing each tear is a note of love rising to the heavens.
