Writing a sympathy message can be really 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 want to offer help, be specific about what you can do, like bringing food or running errands.
-Adding a thoughtful gift can make your message especially meaningful.
