Bereavement Thank You


When someone is grieving bereavement thank you is not on their minds.  Itís not that they donít appreciate everyoneís generosity, itís just that they have so much else on their minds that they just canít comprehend what is going on around them.  After a bit, when things settle down and their grief isnít so overwhelming they will start to notice more. They will read the cards, smell the flowers, enjoy the food and feel the warmth around them.  At this point, they may want to reach out to those who reached out to them first.

There are ways that you can help them when that time comes around.  Making sure you have your name and address is on the envelope in case they find the time to send a thank you card.  This is not expected by any means, although it wouldnít hurt to have it there just in case that is something they decide they want to do. Also making sure your name is on the card of flowers or gift basket so they know who gave it.


If you are the grieving people, you may be wondering how you can extend your thanks to everyone for being so caring.  Below are ways you can show your thanks:

  • A simple phone call can say so much

  • Taking someone out to dinner who brought you dinner so many nights

  • Baking for an office bunch is a nice gesture to say thank you for your thoughtful words

  • Sending a thank you card

These are just some of the ways to extend condolence thank youís.  But at this time in your lives, keep in mind, no one is expecting anything.  Everyone knows you appreciate what is or was being done for you and they all understand how difficult and overwhelming it is to receive all this attention when all you want to do is be alone.  But allow yourself to be with people and not feel guilty.  Having people around will help ease the pain you are feeling.  Surround yourself by comforting people.
