Sympathy Card Verses

Verse #1
You're in our thoughts
Please know how much
you are loved
and how deeply
your loss is felt by all.

Verse #2
Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed, and very dear.

Verse #3
The sorrow of the faithful
is not that of permanent loss,
but the tender sense of sadness
that comes in saying goodbye for now
to someone we love.
May today's sorrow gives way
to the peace and
comfort of God's love.

Verse #4
May it make your sorrow
Easier to bear
Knowing there are others
Who understand and care
Through the pain and loss you feel
You can count on our 'support'
We'll be with you, in spirit
And in mind and heart and thought
And though it will be difficult
In the days ahead of you,
Try to face the future bravely
As (name of the deceased) would want you to.

Verse #5
Words, however kind,
can't mend your heartache:
but those who care and
share your loss wish you
comfort and peace of mind.
May you find strength
in the love of family
and in the warm embrace
of friends.

Through such sayings, you are asking the bereaved person to be strong and face what has happened with courage. The bereaved person may read and reread your card to gather strength for days to come. So, be very honest and sincere while writing such cards.
