100 Uplifting Sympathy Messages For Loved Ones

The demise of a loved one is usually a very painful experience that words are not enough to describe. Most times even writing a condolence message seems hard because at that moment, we’re all at a loss for words. Finding the words to express your deepest feelings at a time of loss can sometimes be very difficult. With all the emotions that occur at this time, it can be challenging for the message writer to write at all in the first place, let alone, write something uplifting. It is best to keep in mind, that both parties are going through their own emotions. Finding words to write, that convey your sympathy, is not always easy. As a rule of thumb, Do write what is in your heart. Do not write ’empty words’ and Do not write words that you do not feel. What can you write then?

We have put together a selection of real inspirational uplifting sympathy/bereavement messages that we have personally received as well as submissions from our readers. We hope these examples will help you find your own unique way of expressing your love and concern for someone that has lost a loved one.
