       the person meant to you. Briefly mentioning a special memory or anecdote might be a nice touch, too.

        Tips on Sympathy Card Messages

        First, you'll want to remember that your message does not need be very long. Hopefully, the family will be
       receiving many such card sympathy and may not have the energy to read a lengthy message. Plus, the more
       you end up writing the better the risk of saying something which might be hurtful, even if it's only an
       accidental slip. For example, some writers of condolence http://
       www.cardsshoppe.com/bereavement-cards/sympathy-thank-you-cards.htm Sympathy Thank You Cards
       have mistakenly written "Time heals all wounds" as a way of trying to perk up the grieving person but the
       reaction is usually the opposite.

        A good idea is to stick with a few basic messages. Make sure you add phrases to your http://
       www.cardsshoppe.com/bereavement-cards/sympathy-cards.htm Sympathy Cards such as "With deepest
       sympathy" or "You're in our prayers." It's also nice to mention some fond memories you have of the
       deceased person. Always refer to the deceased by name even if you did not know him or her very well.

        Other Tips for printed Sympathy Cards

        If you knew the deceased person very well, it's completely fine to write a bit more and mention how much
       the person meant to you. Briefly mentioning a special memory or anecdote might be a nice touch, too.
       Make sure you sign the message with your full name so the recipient will know specifically who sent the
       message. If the bereavement card is coming from your entire family, make sure to include "and Family"
       after your signature.

        When you send custom condolence messages, it's perfectly fine to express a willingness to do something
       kind for the bereaved person. Don't make an open ended offer. The person may need your assistance but
       may not even realize what needs to be done because of his or her grief. Plus, by making a more specific
       offer of assistance you won't have to worry about being asked to do anything you weren't willing to do in
       the first place.

        If you've also sent flowers to the funeral, you don't need to mention this in the Christian sympathy cards or
       http://www.cardsshoppe.com/bereavement-cards/funeral-cards.htm Funeral Cards. Also, you don't want to
       assume that the flowers themselves are a substitute for http://

families do not have a chance to read all of the cards included with the flowers so they may not know
immediately who sent them. The loss http://

letting them know early on how that you are there for them during this time.

 Attending the funeral does not mean you can't also send condolence messages. In fact, doing both is always
a good and much appreciated idea.
