Sympathy Cards Are Hugs By Mail

by Henry L. on May 3, 2012

When someone you love passes away, you go through a whole new emotional experience. Sometimes you remember the good times spent with your loved one and the tears fall. Sometimes you remember how you got through the tough times and the tears fall. Sometimes you miss that person so much and you feel like you are all alone in the world (even in a roomful of people)…and the tears fall.

Then you open the sympathy cards that family, friends, co-workers, and even acquaintances have sent. Sympathy cards are truly expressions of love that comfort you. They are hugs by mail! Most are elegant and poignant. The greetings vary from lengthy verses or poems to simple yet meaningful sentences. Until you experience a loss, you don’t realize how an inexpensive peace of paper can have such a profound impact on a person.

So the next time that you hear of someone’s passing, send the family personalized sympathy cards. Your thoughtfulness will be well-received by those who are grieving the loss of their loved one.

It also helps to share a special moment or memory you had with the deceased, a quick, funny story goes a long a way to help the healing process.

The simple gesture of sending a sympathy card carries a lot of weight. Letting loved ones know you care at their time of need speaks volumes. A card is always a good way to show that your thoughts are with them.
