Your Guide To Expressing Sympathy

When someone is grieving the loss of a loved one or friend, expressing sympathy can show your concern. Petal Relations in Los Angeles offers stunning floral arrangements to help you express your sympathy. A feeling of sympathy is an expression of pity and concern for another's suffering. It doesn't necessarily mean that you know what someone is going through. You are showing your concern and support. 

Flowers and a heartfelt card are both excellent ways to express sympathy. When you sit down to compose the card after you've received the floral arrangement, you might find that you are at a loss of words. It can be difficult to find a way of expressing your sympathies in a supportive and positive manner without negating what the other person is feeling. A short, sweet and caring message can often be all that is needed.


Do you have any questions about what to write on a condolence card? Here are some guidelines to help you create a card of condolence that shows how much you care. You can choose one, modify it to suit your sentiments and relationship with your recipient or use it as a basis to create an original expression.


What to Write About the Loss Of A Spouse


Losing a spouse can be one of the most devastating losses. You may be at a loss as to what to write in the condolence card for someone who has lost their spouse. They have not only lost an important relationship but also a life partner, mate, parent, and friend. What to say in a condolence note can be a difficult task.

The feeling of loneliness is very real for those who have lost their spouse. Your sympathy card should convey that you are there for your friend and let them know they're not alone. You can do this in a number of ways.

  • The love of a partner cannot be replaced. I want you know that I am thinking of you during this difficult time, and I'm here for you if you need me.
  • The regret I feel for you is beyond words. Call me at any time to just say hello.
  • The love that you have for your spouse will never be taken away from you. The essence of your spouse will remain with you forever and live on through memories. When the days get tough, hold on to those memories.
  • Your spouse was a wonderful person. I can't imagine how you feel. I am here to listen and share my thoughts with you.

What to write for the loss of a child

No parent ever expects to live past their child. The death of a child can be a devastating experience for parents. It may be difficult to find the words to say.

Remember that you cannot heal the hurt with your words. Your card should show that you are offering support. Use the child's full name as much as possible when writing this card.

  • Although we can't remove this pain, we send you our love. We are praying for you.
  • We will never forget you or your child. She brought us such joy. We will be thinking of your family and you in the coming days.
  • It is a privilege to have met your child. All who knew him were delighted by his personality. I'm praying/thinking about you.
  • Even though nothing can replace the pain you feel, the love you share lives on through the memories that you have created.

What to write for the loss of a parent


Losing a parent is not a shock, but the void it leaves behind is still very real. You might not have any words to say if you've never been through this kind of loss.

What you write on this card will often depend on whether the deceased was a mother or a father. Fathers can write about what the deceased meant to their child or how his character affected you.

  • The generosity of your father touched many. His generosity will never be forgotten.
  • Your father had a great sense of humor. I will never forget the laughter. Sorry for your loss.
  • You and your siblings will be able to see the love and character of your father. You will continue his legacy and carry on his memory.

Focus on the nurturing role she played in your child's life. Here are some ideas.

  • The love of your mother touched my heart. She will be missed as a friend.
  • I am sorry for the loss of your family. Your mother was a wonderful woman and caretaker. We'll miss her, too.
  • When she brought me cookies after I had my baby, that was my favorite memory. The kindness that I see in your eyes will be her legacy. I'm sorry you are suffering.
  • All the powers on this earth will never be able to beat the love of a mother (Elle Smith). While you mourn your mother, remember that her love will live on in the memories of her.

What to Write About the Loss Of a Friend


Even if it's not a family member who has died, the loss can still be painful. The pain of losing a coworker or friend can be felt every day. The person who lost a friend or coworker will feel pain every time they go to work, or any other place where they spent time together.

You could also use the accompanying card. Here are some simple, heartfelt ideas:

  • I am sorry to hear of your loss. When you need a good friend, I'm here.
  • You will need strength to adjust to your new normal in the coming days.
  • We will always remember your friend.

Arrange a Loving Deliver

Signing the Sympathy Card

You need to finish the card after you have written your message. You may get confused again. What should you sign the letter? Love, with sympathy or something else.

Your relationship will determine the signature you use. Love is a good option if you're close. Other options include:

  • You are in my prayers
  • My deepest condolences
  • Peace to you
  • You have my sympathy
  • Think of You/Your Family

Select a card or gift that matches the tone of the message you want to send and the relationship with the recipient.

Sympathy Messages on the Flower Card


You'll get a flower card if you decide to send flowers instead of a Hallmark card. If your message of sympathy is brief, it may suffice to replace a formal card. Even if you're also sending a sympathy card, it is still best to include a short message on the card of the flowers.

You can write a message of sympathy on the card using:

  • Think of You
  • My sympathy
  • We extend our deepest sympathy
  • Please accept my condolences
  • We are thinking of you and praying for you
  • We care for you and love you
  • You can care for others by thinking of them
  • As you grieve, we honor (name of deceased)
  • Sending a remembrance to your loved ones
  • We will miss you (name the deceased).

You can include a quotation about love or loss. It's nice to give credit to the quote's author. Here are some ideas that will work for sympathy flowers.

  • A great soul is always there for everyone. A great soul never dies. It brings us back together. Maya Angelou
  • Death is just a horizon. Rossiter Ray
  • Let grateful memories endure in times of sadness, like a bird singing through the rain. Robert Louis Stevenson
  • Thomas Campbell: 'To live in the hearts we leave behind, is not to die.

Sign your name next on the card. Often, this is all it takes to express your sympathy.

What to send as Sympathy Cards and Flowers


You need to know how to send your floral sympathy gift. Sending flowers to the funeral location or visitation site is a good idea if your friend lost a family member.

Send flowers and a sympathy card to someone who is mourning the death of a co-worker or friend. If you regularly see the recipient, you can hand deliver the gift.

Petal Relations in Los Angeles has you covered. We offer a variety of floral arrangements, including lilies and roses.

Find the perfect arrangement to show your support in a time of grief. We deliver flowers to Los Angeles, and its surrounding areas. Send flowers to show your appreciation.

What to send for Sympathy?


Flowers have special meanings, and can be used to convey a message. Consider the person who passed away as a starting point. Send an arrangement that includes only their favorite bloom.

Consider the meaning of the flowers that you send if you don't have a preference for the flower. Chrysanthemums, for example, are used as a symbol of grief and mourning in many Pacific Asian nations and in European funeral bouquets.

Lilies are often used in sympathy arrangements. They have a deep connection with Christianity, and they are a symbol for innocence that can comfort the bereaved. In Asian cultures, lilies are also a symbol of peace. Many people who are grieving can find comfort in wishing them peace.

Roses are suitable for many occasions.

Crimson Roses are a great choice for a funeral arrangement because they show deep love and sorrow.

White carnations are a beautiful gift if the deceased was young. They symbolize innocence and youth. Red carnations are a symbol of admiration and love, which makes them a popular choice for sympathy flowers.
