It’s All About the Detail
When someone is bereaved, it can be comforting to be reminded of the person they have lost and how appreciated they were.
Why not share some of your favourite memories of the departed? You could recall an act of kindness or a funny story that conveys their warmth and spirit. It’s the little details that mean so much to the bereaved and can put a smile back on their face as they remember their loved one.
It’s OK to Keep It Brief
When you hear of a bereavement, it can stir up so many of your own thoughts and feelings.
You may feel so overwhelmed with all the things you want to say that you simply can’t find the right words. In this case, remember it’s OK to keep your message brief. Something simple like, “We are so sorry for your loss. Remember that our thoughts are with you and we will do anything we can to support you at this difficult time,” may be all you need to say.
Just Be Heartfelt
At a time of loss, sincerity and kindness are appreciated. Your message will sound authentic if you stick to simple language and concepts. A straightforward message, such as “I can’t imagine what you’re going through, but please know I am here if you need help,” lets the recipient know that they have your sympathy and support.
If you write with sincerity and thoughtfulness, this will shine through in your words. So don’t be afraid to write your own heartfelt message, which will help those in mourning through a difficult time.
