Sample Sympathy Thank You Notes
Thank You For Sympathy Messages

Wording sympathy thank you notes is a difficult task when you are grieving. Writing thank you for sympathy messages is the last thing on your mind, let alone thinking about who should actually receive one. 

I hope that my sample wording to say thank you for your sympathy  will help you at this difficult time.

If someone you know has lost a loved one and you require help with sympathy card wording here you will also find thoughtful words to express sympathy and sample condolence letters.

I too have lost loved ones and must confess did not even think about sending sympathy thank you notes at the time. I now regret it dearly as the support, flowers and cards my family received at the time was overwhelming.

Writing A Sympathy Note - Words Of Sympathy

Writing just a few words of sympathy can often prove difficult. On a card such as one sent with flowers you could write:

You are in our thoughts and our prayers

We are deeply saddened to hear of the loss of your mother

We are thinking of you at this difficult time

Sending deepest sympathy during this sad time

I wish I knew what to say but words just aren't enough

Sympathy Poem

God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be.

So he put his arms around you, and whispered “Come to Me”.

With tearful eyes we watched you, we watched you fade away.

Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands now rest.

God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best.

Thank you for providing such a helpful site. My mother died of cancer two months ago and while I wanted and needed to send 'thank yous' to different people, I was too muddled with grief to do so. Your sample notes were wonderful and I have sent all that was necessary. The relief is great and I am very grateful. Thank you and best wishes for your health and happiness in 2017.
