Condolence Thank You Notes
Sample Wording

Thinking of condolence thank you notes, the wording and writing them at a time of loss is a difficult task. 

To make it easier for you I have written thank you for your condolences notes which you can use and change accordingly.

Grief affects us all in different ways. Writing notes may be a way of releasing your grief and bring comfort to you. I certainly hope so.

Your friends, family or colleagues won't expect a lengthy thank you for condolences letter from you. In just a few lines, you can say thank you for cards, flowers, kind gestures, sympathy and support.

The two thank you notes below are more personal ones that could be written and sent out a few months after the death.

Dear Martha,

I have been thinking about the last few months and how much my life has changed. I know for certain, I couldn't have got through it alone.

Mum being ill and watching her condition take a turn for the worse was the most difficult time for us all. I was grateful that I could talk to you about it and that you took the time to listen. Your visits meant the world to me and my family  and we were overwhelmed by your concern for us.

Please know that if you should ever need help in any way we are there for you. You are a generous and compassionate friend, and we are very grateful.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Julia and Tom


Dear Jane,

A new year in which to reflect on those wonderful people who helped me get through the last few months. They have been challenging months as I learn to live, again, without Stephen.

Your hospitality and cards have meant so much and it is in times of sadness and grief that such personal words, and friends, are so valuable.

I hope that this year will be a happy one for you and your family and I will try and visit you shortly.

Thank you for caring,

Love Jodie

I hope that my sample condolence thank you notes will help you with the task of writing notes when a loved one has passed away.

If you don't feel up to the task please consider buying a pre-printed thank you card that only requires you to write one line and sign it. Then make a mental note of thanking people when you next see them in person.

Please accept my sincere condolences on the passing of your loved one.

Last year I received a thank you note from Leilani/USA. It fills my heart with gratitude to receive such kind words of thanks and to know that my thank you wording can be of help. I hope Leilani won't mind me sharing it with you.

"In August, my husband fell ill unexpectedly and had to be hospitalized. Six days later he passed away from a common virus that did a rare attack on his vital organs. His passing took place three days before our first anniversary and a month before our child's first birthday. To say I was in shock is an understatement. Two months have passed and I am just starting to come out of the fog. Your website not only helped me regain my voice, you were the only one that gave their condolences. Thank you for creating a wonderful site for people that need help turning their feelings into words."
