Making your own sympathy card adds a very special personal touch when passing on your condolences to a friend or family member following the loss of a loved one.

It’s not always that easy however, to come up with the sympathy card wording that goes inside.

So here are a few sample sympathy card messages or verses that you could use inside your card:

  • Thinking of you at this difficult time
  • I am deeply saddened to hear of your loss – our thoughts are with you
  • Gone from our sight but never from our memories or our hearts. He/She shall be greatly missed.
  • May time ease the pain of your loss that no words can
  • May time soften the pain until all that remains is the comfort of memories and love
  • Sending deepest sympathy and heartfelt thoughts
  • There is so little we can say at a time of loss like this but know that my heart goes out to you.
  • Our loved ones leave the world, but never our hearts.
  • We wish to express our sympathy in your loss and to let you know that our thoughts are with you.
  • Words seem inadequate to express the sadness we feel. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
  • You have my deepest sympathies on the death of your {loved one}. Know that our hearts go out to you in your time of sorrow.
  • Lean on your friends for strength, and always remember how much you are cared about.
