To Your Coworker for Loss of a Mother

I am sorry for the loss of your mother. I know this is a difficult time but hopefully you can be comforted knowing she has left behind so many people who care about her and think fondly of her.

May memories of happier times honour your mother’s memory in the days to come. My thoughts are with you during this sad time.

Although it may seem impossible, try not to think negative thoughts today, just remember all the good times that you had with your mom while you were alive together. You will always have those happy memories that will keep her spirit up when you feel down!

Please accept my deepest sympathy on the loss of your mother. It is never easy to lose a close family member and I’m sure this is an especially difficult time for you. As we say goodbye to our loved ones, we must also carry on with kindness and affection in our hearts.

Please accept my heartfelt condolences for you and your entire family for this great loss that has been placed upon you all from the passing of your mother from this world into a larger one beyond us all, where she can be at peace knowing her child will live without pain forevermore. This world is really less because of her departure from it but I know God needed another angel more than we did so He has given her to Himself now.

Although no one can replace your mother, I hope that you are able to find comfort in knowing that she is now looking over you from above because she was always watching out for you when she was still here on earth with us all.

My deepest sympathies for the loss of your mother. As we say goodbye to our loved ones, it can bring much sadness into our lives but knowing that they still live on in our memories helps keep them alive forever more.

Thank you for being so open about this sad time. It is helpful to know that I am not alone in my grief when a loved one passes from this world into the next. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

Although we can feel our spirits getting weaker when we experience loss, don’t forget that your mother will always live on in your memory for as long as you keep her alive inside your heart and by speaking of her often in conversations with others.

Thank you for sharing your feelings about the death of your mother with myself and other people who have been following what has been going on within. May she rest in peace knowing how much pain she caused many people during her life here on Earth, but it was a good pain for she brought this world so much happiness when she was still alive.

To Your Coworker for Loss of a Father

I hope you find strength not only in the memories of your father, but also in the belief that he will live on inside you. You are forever changed for having had him in your life. And now that he’s gone, it is up to you to make his memory last by continuing to walk down the same path of honor and integrity he walked before you.

When a parent dies, part of their spirit lives on inside us. For as long as we live, they continue teaching us everything we need to know about ourselves and giving us reasons to be proud of who we are becoming. Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss.

The day you lose a loved one, a part of your heart dies too. It will never beat the same way again because it holds a time and place you cannot revisit. I am sorry for your loss.

When someone dear to us leaves this world, we are often left with questions; why now, why them, why us. We will never have all the answers. My sincerest condolences for your loss.

If you could tell your father just one more time that you loved him, what would it be? I am sorry you cannot say goodbye.

No words can assuage your pain or bring back your father, but I’m glad to be part of a world where friends live on in each other’s memories and hearts. For oftentimes, we are not completely gone until we are forgotten entirely. Sincerely yours, [NAME]

Your father won’t be remembered for his best days, but instead for the way he loved you in your darkest. He was a lighthouse to your shipwrecked heart, standing strong when you couldn’t. Now that he has passed away, you are not alone at sea anymore. I am here for you with open arms and tears of compassion.

The world often feels like it is made of glass at times like these. It casts back your reflection perfectly – so much so that sometimes you cannot tell where one person ends and the other begins. You have my share now in this difficult time, my friend. Please know I carry part of your pain with me always, just as surely as you will carry my love in your heart forever.

Grief is like a thief in the night. It sneaks up on you when you least expect it and robs your senses, leaving only your thoughts of what used to be. But eventually grief will pass, much like the last dark clouds of a storm finally give way to sunlight after days of rain. And when it passes, I hope you are surrounded by all those who love you – family and friends alike.

Though no one can take away your pain or make this better right now, I want you to know that there are people around you who care about what happens next. Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss during this difficult time, knowing that I am here whatever may come next for you.

To Your Coworker for Loss of a man holding woman

 

The world will keep turning, the sun still rise, but things will never be quite as bright. Your husband has moved on to be with his maker and watch over you forever. My heart aches for all the pain that you feel right now, but it won’t last forever. I send my sympathies in your time of grief.

It is a sad day when someone so young passes away from our world too soon. No matter how much darkness surrounds you know that God’s love shines around you every single moment of each and every day. You will find solace in knowing he is in a better place and knows no pain or suffering anymore. May your heart eventually come to see this great truth in due time.

Time heals a lot of wounds, but it does not heal them all. The pain you feel now will be with you forever, and I send my love to you as I know how difficult this is to acknowledge right now. You have been blessed by sharing your life with such a wonderful person, and most people never get that privilege at all. My thoughts are with you during the most difficult time in your life.

A wife is not just born from flesh and blood, but from tender kisses and warm embraces. She lives within the heart long after she has passed away. Separation may divide a couple’s bodies for a short while, but it can never separate their souls for eternity. May God bless your husband, and your soul for all of eternity.

The leaves will fall, but new ones will come again in the springtime. The stars may fade out at night, but morning brings them again; and so it is with our memories of those who are no longer with us. You may find comfort knowing that even though his earthly body may be gone, he is very much alive in all of our hearts and souls…I am sorry for your loss.

Our lives are filled with good-byes – maybe it’s time to say hello! Comfort yourself that you’ll be together soon. As seasons change, I pray that today’s warmth will give way to new life.

May the grass grow green over his grave, may dew drops fall softly on it; my deepest sympathy to you and your family for the loss of your husband, father & friend! Sending happy thoughts, smiles and hugs!

I hope that the life you shared with your husband is a source of solace in this difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you, and you have my deepest sympathies on the passing of your husband.

In our lives we all will meet people who not only make us feel better about ourselves, but make us feel loved and protected by them. Let it be known to you that your husband was one of those shining stars in your life. May his family find peace during this most difficult time. I wish for peace to come around soon, and leave the sorrow behind.

You once told me that when a door closes a window opens, or vice versa. As sad as it is to see the door of your marriage close, I know that new windows opened for you to experience love again. As difficult as this is, look at it in a positive way. There are also doors opening for you, so please open them with hope and expectation of finding happiness once more.

Your husband was your biggest supporter and your most loyal friend. You were blessed by knowing him and sharing your lives together. Never forget how lucky you were to have someone who loved you unconditionally and made every day of your lives together filled with joy until his last breath on earth.
