Sympathy Messages for Death of a Father

What to Write in a Sympathy Card for Loss of Father

The loss of a father is a significant loss. Deciding what to say to someone who lost his/her dad can feel impossible. Most people will lose their fathers sometime during their lifetime. You don't have to know exactly what to write. Use one of the following messages and edit it to fit the person you want to console.
  1. From what you've told me about your dad, it sounds like you two were close. I want to acknowledge your loss and offer my support. Expect to hear from me soon.
  2. Although he wasn't dad to me, your father was important to many people, including myself. I will miss his wit, humor, and friendship.
  3. Your dad was a amazing man, full of integrity and character. I am glad I was able to know him. Please accept my condolences to you and your family.
  4. Dads are special people. They are greatly missed when we lose them. We'll miss your dad.

  9. I will keep you close in my thoughts and prayers in the coming weeks as you are going through your process of grieving.
  10. I am at a total loss of words of what to write or say to you to console you for the loss of your father. I want you to know that I am willing to talk anytime. I will be calling you soon to check on you and to be a listening ear for anything you want to talk about.
  11. I will pray that God will grant you the strength and the wisdom that your dad once provided to you and your family.
  12. I am deeply and sincerely sorry for the loss of your father.

  17. I am sorry you lost your dad. I hope you find that your memories are a comfort when you need some.

When someone dies

how to announce death of father

As I had previously written, Dad had been in hospital before Christmas and came home just in time, but was very poorly over the festivities.

Macmillan had just started coming to see us, and had managed to sort out his meds which helped a great deal, but unfortunately Dad deteriorated on New Years eve and found that due to extreme breathing difficulties he could hardly manage to get back upstairs at bedtime, from then on he stayed in his bedroom, except for going for a chest x-ray and he went by ambulance for that!

On Tuesday 10th Jan he was taken back into hospital and was found to have a massive pleural effusion, they inserted another chest drain but he took a turn for the worse and unfortunately lost his fight on Thursday.

I would like to take this opportunity to say thankyou once again for the help and support you have all given Dad, the advice that has been shared and the words of encouragement.

Good luck to you all in your fights against this horrible disease.

Karen and all our family xx

Not what you're looking for?

Simon takes on the Three Peaks Challenge

how to announce death of father

Share This:

Announcing a death is one of the most difficult tasks any of us will ever undertake.

Besides the sheer pain and stress of dealing with our own emotions, the ambiguity of what to say when a loved one passes, who to notify and in what order, and all of the other decisions that have always made this such an emotionally volatile mix, today we are forced to incorporate social media into our grieving process.

While many of us would prefer to maintain more traditional methods of disseminating this sensitive information, the fact of the matter is that today, social media is the main form of communication for huge numbers of people. Increasingly, these folks have no qualms about sharing sensitive information.


Letting friends and acquaintances know about a death via social media

Social media etiquette is constantly and rapidly evolving. On this topic in particular, less than two years ago, Gizmodo, the popular technology and lifestyle blog, recommended that death notices not be posted because they would end up coexisting with the jokes, memes, and political rants that are more typical Facebook content. On the other hand, a blogger at the Liberty Mutual website describes her recent experience of learning of a professional colleague’s death via Facebook as “elegant”.

As more and more of us share more and more information on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other outlets, the concepts of TMI (Too Much Information), oversharing – even privacy itself – are disappearing. Members of younger generations (millennials, ie those born after 1981 through the mid 90s) are far more likely to text, tweet or post than they are to pick up the phone or even send an email. As this generation (and their children) ages, sharing intensely personal information, up to and including death announcements, is not only losing its sense of taboo, it’s quickly becoming the norm.

Facebook introduces the “legacy contact” for the profiles of the deceased

Facebook recently rolled out an update clarifying the status of legacy accounts. For the last several years, they have allowed profiles of the deceased to be memorialized. Now you have additional options regarding what happens to your account data and public profile after you pass away.

One option created by the update allows you to totally delete the account upon notification of your death. This will get rid of your timeline, all of your likes, posts, photos, comments, and notes, etc.

Alternatively, you could choose to designate a Facebook friend as a “legacy contact.” This person will have the ability to create a beautiful memorial post, and to pin it indefinitely to the top of your timeline.

The legacy contact will not be allowed create posts on your behalf and they will not have access to your private messages. They will have access to photos and are allowed to download your archive.

Should We Post—A Case By Case Decision

Even with Facebook taking the lead on this question (and with the other social media companies soon to follow, no doubt) the question remains: is social media an appropriate method of notifying friends and family when a loved one passes away? What are the issues you need to factor into your decision? And if you decide to move forward with a social media announcement, how do we do it with sensitivity and respect?

Consider these factors when deciding whether or not to use social media to make this announcement:
Tweet This

  • How old was the deceased?
  • How would they have wanted the announcement to be handled?
  • Were they active on social media?
  • Was social media their de facto method of communicating with their friends, family and colleagues?

If they were ambivalent towards, or didn’t use social media, then it is probably not only inappropriate, but ineffective as well for spreading this news. If they were active users of any of the major platforms it may be appropriate to use them to get the word out to their friends and coworkers.

A Valuable Component of a Robust Support System

Social media is the fastest, easiest and most efficient method we have today of getting information to potentially large numbers of people who have no connection to each other beyond the one that they shared with the deceased. It allows for the bereaved to come together to grieve, share memories and comfort the deceased family and each other, regardless of how far flung they may be.

In any case, we would recommend letting close family members, and close friends know by the most personal method available, whether that be in person or over the phone, prior to posting the news to social media.

Creating a Considerate and Suitable Post

Remember that death is a delicate topic, no matter where you’re talking about it, so be considerate when announcing a death on Facebook.

Some of the advice we read while researching how to go about this gave this very helpful insight: carefully consider why you are posting or tweeting about the death. Is it to inform, or to gain sympathy from others about your loss?

Limit the initial announcement to the logistics of your loved one’s funeral:
  • The date and time of the memorial service or funeral
  • The location of the memorial service, funeral or grave site
  • Information regarding memorial funds to which people can donate

Thereafter, to help you and other bereaved individuals who may not be in the immediate family or innermost circle of friends process your grief, we recommend changing your loved one’s account into a Facebook memorial wall so that friends and family can post their memories, condolences or photos there. If you decide to take this step, you will want to monitor the site for a while to make sure that any content posted is appropriate and respectful to the deceased.

As is usually the case when matters of etiquette are discussed the Emily Post Institute is out in front of this relatively new development. Daniel Post Senning who is the social media etiquette expert for the Institute has this typically smart and well-considered take: “It’s another tool we have at our disposal,” Senning said. “We have to learn how to use that tool with some intelligence.”
