Dear Jessica and family
Your grandmother Sally and I, as you probably all know, met at school and became firm friends. She was a special person who enriched the lives of people around her. We had a very long friendship which has seen both of us have families, children and grandchildren. I know that she was very proud of her family. I shall miss her and you should be proud to have had her wonderful presence in your lives.
My love to you all at this sad time.
We were so sorry to hear of the loss of your grandmother, her home cooking was legendary among your friends. Many of us recall her stories of the "Good Old Days" with respect and fondness. She was full of sound advice but also full of fun and at times quite risque! She will not only be missed by the family but also their friends. We are all thinking about you at this sad time.
Love from your college friends, Jean and Norma
We were so sorry to hear the sad news of the loss of your grandfather Jack. We have so many happy memories of listening to his tales of times gone by. How many huge fish that got away! His story telling skills were so entertaining.
He was always ready to be the taxi driver to our swimming teams or soccer matches. We always knew where to go if we needed the skate boards or bicycles repaired. His barbeque sausages at club events were always considered the best. He was a friend to us all, touched all our lives in many ways. Our condolences go out to your family at this sad time.
Dan and the boys.

Lots of love

Condolences are hard. When a friend or relative loses a loved one, you have to say something. And yet you know there are no words that can possibly take away their pain, and conversely, quite a few ways you could end up putting your foot in your mouth at a sensitive time.
Perhaps the best advice here is to keep things simple. The job of a condolence message – especially in the immediate aftermath of loss – is just to let someone know you care. You don’t need a lot of words for that.
To give you some ideas, here’s a list of short condolence messages that are appropriate for sharing in greeting cards, text messages, emails, and the like.
Note: As you’ll quickly see, these are sample messages that may need to be revised to fit your particular needs. Adding personal touches is key to an effective condolence message.
