Sending bereavement cards is usually on the top of our list when someone loses someone they love. Most people go off to one of the local card stores and pick one out with an appropriate saying, sign their name and send it off to the recipient. But how personal is that? Here we will help give you ideas on how to make sending a sympathy card a more personal matter. For example, using condolence phrases.
Poems or Quotes
If time is a factor then purchasing a card is probably what you will do. That isnít a bad thing, there are some very nice condolence cards out there with some very well written sympathy verses. But why not personalize it some by finding a great poems or nice quote about memories, grief or even love. Using a poem or quote might not seem all that personal to you, but it actually gives another perception than just the verse in the card and it shows that youíve taken the time to add a little something extra, not just signing you name and sending off.
A few great quotes on loss:
"While we are mourning the loss of our friend, others are rejoicing to meet him behind the veil."
