How to send condolences after someone has passed away
When your friend, family member or colleague is affected by the passing of a loved one, sending condolences is a thoughtful gesture of comfort and support. However, many people are unsure how to reach out to the grieving party and worry about saying the wrong thing.
How to Share Your Sympathies
How you reach out to someone who has lost a loved one depends on the relationship. If you’re close, we suggest the personal approach of sending a card or a handwritten letter. For more distant acquaintances, a thoughtful email or a post on their social media page is appropriate.
