Bereavement thank you notes can be difficult to write when you are grieving.
If you were sent a kind note of sympathy, received flowers or another token of bereavement, you might like to send a thank you note.
I hope my thank you wording will help you writing your thank you notes at this difficult time.
Below you'll find example thank you notes, but I've also linked to other pages that might be of interest to you.
Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your loved one.
Dear Mr Smith
Thank you for your kind letter of sympathy and bereavment card. It was lovely of you to share your memories of Mum. She was a very special lady and I shall miss her dearly.
Thank you once again for your kind words.
Please accept my sincere thanks for the beautiful flowers you sent for Mum's funeral service. Roses were her favorite; she would have loved them.
Your thoughtfulness and kind words are greatly appreciated.
Thank you for attending my Father's funeral. It was so comforting to see you again after all these years. Your kind words touched me deeply and I am sincerely grateful for the beautiful flowers you sent.
My Father lived a long and happy life and will be sadly missed by friends and family and you being present meant so much to us.
Dear Tom and Jane,
Thank you for your kind letter of sympathy. Your heartfelt words and memories of Tessa touched me deeply. It is comforting to know how she touched so many lives and how much she will be missed by all who knew her.
I haven't thought too much beyond the funeral, but please know that your thoughtful offer of help with the school run is greatly appreciated.
Thank you again for your kindness.
Thank you for your sympathy and bereavement card. It is of great comfort to know that you are thinking of us as we grieve Steven's death.
Steven was a caring, loving husband and father and our loss is too great. Your kind words will help us in the difficult time ahead. But knowing that Steven touched so many lives will help us to accept his untimely death.
Thank you once again for your thoughtfulness.
"Thank you so much for the wonderful words you use in the messages. They are wonderful and soothing. I was grieving the death of my father and didn`t really know how to reply to the emails I received during this tough time. Your thoughtful words have made it easy for me to reply to those messages. Thank you so much for your wonderful work. God bless you."
