- This article is great for the simple fact that I wouldn't know where to start when it came to writting this letter. I will definatley use this as a reference if it ever came down to it. Thank you
- I never had to write one of these before and I felt helpless and uncertain about how to express myself sincerely. Your article was the best advice I could hope for because it reduces the confusion in the mind and makes you focus on what really is important. Just following the steps made me write down what I wanted to say from heart to heart. Thank you so much.

Share a Memory
- Thank you for this article on how to write a condolence letter. I've found it very helpful. I think it's important to always include a person memory of the deceased. My friends mother passed away recently and in writing a condolence letter to him I shared a memory of a time his mother caught us smoking cigarettes when we were just 14 years old. From that point on, she always did a "smell check" when we would walk in his front door to make sure we hadn't been smoking again. She could smell a single cigarette under layers of cologne! She is the reason I don't smoke today. Including a personal memory shows how much the deceased meant to you and adds a certain level of empathy to your condolence letter.
