Condolence letter

Last Updated on April 24, 2022

A condolence letter is generally a way of expressing condolences to the person who has recently lost a loved one. The letter has to offer little comfort and support, encouraging a person to stay positive in his/her bad times and move on with life.

Points to remember when writing a condolence letter.

  • Always draft your condolence letter in a short and concise way.
  • Use friendly and comforting words to console the recipient.
  • Mention your support to offer possible assistance.
  • Do not add feelings or exaggerated words.



Dear sir/madam,

It is with heavy heart am writing this letter to you, soon after hearing the demise of your loving sister. She was one of the kindest women I have known. It was unfortunate for your family to undergo such a huge loss. As we know how strong your family bonding was with your sister and I wish everything will be back on track sooner. Accept my deepest condolences on your personal loss.

I hope you do not lose your faith in time as the greatest healer. Believe in yourself and support your family as they go through the same feeling of loss. I will come to see you as soon as I am back in the country. If there is anything that I can do for you, whether it is financial or emotional, do not hesitate to call me back.

I wish you all the best to recover soon from the sad occasion. Convey my condolences to your family as well.

Yours truly,
