Writing a bereavement note
Sincerity is key when writing a bereavement note.
When the time comes to write a bereavement note, many of us feel at a loss for words. Just remember that sincerity is the key. A few thoughtful sentiments are all that is required in an emotional situation. To begin, choose one of your more formal stationery pieces. Embossed notecards are perfect in their tone and simplicity. Then just express your care and sympathy succinctly. Phrases like we're sorry for your loss, and I know you're missing him/her, can be meaningful without being overly flowery or insincere. Remember, your goal is only to let them know you're thinking of them. Nothing more, nothing less.
