Sympathy Messages

by Tenley McDonald

The loss of a loved one. It is often difficult to find the right words to express your sympathy to someone during this time of sorrow. A funeral flower guide and supportive message can offer much support to those grieving such a loss. Here we list some suggestions, perhaps to inspire you as you offer your condolences with your floral tribute.

~Our deepest condolences
~With Sympathy
~Our thoughts are with you and your family.
~In Loving Memory
~You are in our thoughts and prayers.
~Fondest remembrances
~Thinking of you and offering you hope and comfort.
~May you find peace and love in the memories you cherish.

In the weeks after...

After the initial outpouring of support, even weeks after the service, encouraging words can provide continued comfort. Consider sending a floral arrangement, a green or blooming plant, or even a gourmet or fruit basket to the family's home with a supportive message. Here are a few suggestions for you;

~Just wanted you to know you are in my thoughts
~I have been thinking of you
~Hope this brings sunshine to your day
~Let's get together soon for lunch, give me a call.
~Just as you have been for us, we are always here for you.

Overall, an uplifting and sensitive message is most comforting. Avoid words like "sad" or "I know how you feel". Messages offering your heartfelt support and friendship with your floral tribute will be appreciated. Your local florist can offer further suggestions about sending a floral tribute.
