Losing a loved one is not an easy phase to get through. It is always devastating. Whether it is a parent, a sibling or a friend; the pain is excruciating. The connection between family members is like nothing else; more so between parents and their children. Most family members are people we turn to for support and comfort, so losing any of them is hard to deal with. This is why it is usually difficult to come up with words to console someone who is grieving for a loved one.

Finding the right words to include in a condolence letter could be a herculean task. You do not want to sound disrespectful, but also want to console them in the best possible way. This difficulty can be dealt with using sympathy quotes. These short sympathy quotes, whether written on cards or accompanied by a bouquet of flowers, will go a long way to tell a grieving person just how much you sympathize with them.
