When a person dies, it is not hard for the deceased family only but those who are willing to comfort them. It's difficult to say something comforting in this time when nobody really wants to speak, and it's also a puzzle to find the perfect timing to do so. Before someone else you're dear with passes away, it's best to learn how to make a sympathy card.

Your goal in making a sympathy card is to show your concern to the person who lost a loved one. Through this, they would feel that in a time of sadness and mourning, there is someone walking beside them and thinking of their happiness.

The perfect time to send sympathy messages is a week or two after the loss. It is during these times that the wound of losing someone is still fresh and needs to be attended to. But what is better to give, a personally made sympathy card with your own handwriting or a store-bought card with computerized message? Between a personally made sympathy cardand a store-bought one, you can give whatever you prefer but remember that at all times, it would be more polite to have your message handwritten. This clearly shows your effort and thoughtfulness.

The content of sympathy messages has a specific format. First, you have to acknowledge the loss of the specific person. Your expression of sympathy comes next. Afterwards, you mention the good qualities of the deceased and the most memorable moments you had with them. The deceased surely has a purpose to the person you'll send a sympathy card to. It would be polite to offer some kind of help to the people left behind. However, you must make sure that you can comply with the help that you offered. Lastly, you should put a sympathetic ending line such as, "Though apart, our thoughts and hearts are with you." And like any other letter, you need to give a closing.

What you have to keep in mind is that sympathy messages should be simple and direct to the point. You wouldn't want to give the dear ones a hard time comprehending on what you've written when they already have too much in mind with the loss of their loved one. Also, the line, "I know how you feel", is a taboo. People act differently to the same situation so strip this off the letter.
