50 condolence messages to show sincere support


At one time or another, all of our lives are unfairly affected by pain. When it’s our turn to take care lose someone you love, there is nothing more painful and when someone we know is going through grief, it can be difficult to effectively convey how drained we feel on their behalf. This is where thought out, pre-written messages of condolence can compensate for a loss of words.

Anyone who’s been through deep grief will probably tell you that there are certain things they don’t want to hear anymore. And it makes sense. Because following a disaster, life-changing event, “sorry for your loss” does not always speak to the enormity of emotions. The dearest and deepest messages of condolence are those that offer support, sympathy and empathy for the bereaved, and let them know they have you, a friend, to lean on. So whether you’re looking for ideas on what to say in person or what to write on a condolence card, we’ve got plenty of thoughtful, thoughtful, and heartfelt inspiration to share.

Keep reading for 50 heartfelt condolence messages that show the recipient’s love and kindness while experiencing grief.

We couldn’t say anything.

As much as I love you;
And every time you think of me

When tomorrow begins without me,
Don’t think we’re far apart
For every time you think of me
I’m right here in your heart.
