Business Sympathy Cards Touch the Heart

by Henry L. on February 6, 2012

When someone experiences the loss of a loved one, business sympathy cards can bring to light how many other lives have been impacted by this individual. Receiving acknowledgement from someone’s co-workers touches the heart as it reveals an often unknown group of people that share the loss of your dearly departed. We all know the effects of the loss on friends and family but hearing from outside this group can be very special indeed.

I recently lost a very dear friend of many years. After the services were over, her husband approached me and asked if I would help him choose appropriate thank you cards. He wanted to send a message of thanks in response to the many thoughtful  sympathy cards that had been sent to him from his wife’s co-workers and clients. He told me that he had received an astonishing amount of approximately 300 business related cards! He knew only a few of these people and was overwhelmed by the kindness and caring these cards represented.

Business greeting cards, in general, show appreciation and respect for people we work with, who work for us, and who we work for. That respect and appreciation exhibited through a business sympathy card is a way to show someone how much their dear one meant to others. It’s a simple way to touch the heart.

I have always believed that the wake and funeral are for the living people left behind so it was very thoughtful of your friends co-workers to express their sympathy to her husband. She must have been a wonderful person to be thought of by so many people

That reminds me, when my brother-in-law passed, it’s only then I found out he was a Marine Veteran, he never shared this with me and here I am just as proud as I could be at his funeral, wish he would’ve share it with me when He was alive, we may have had a lot more to talk about. Now at his Funeral all his Marine buddies shows up in uniform. My reaction was WOW! Yes I know what you mean when you find out at someone’s passing how they impact others. This is what the Marine said when he folded the flag that was draped over my brother-in-laws coffin, “No one but a Marine buries another Marine. I was touched.
