  • I can’t begin to fathom the pain you’re feeling to lose someone so dear to you, but I’m praying for some supernatural strength to help you get through.
  • I’m truly sorry for your loss. I understand how it feels to lose someone so dear to you. But I want you to know that you are always in my thoughts. You are in my prayers too.
  • I am familiar with the empty feeling that has now taken up residence in your heart. Please know that I am here if you need to talk. If you don’t want to talk, I’m still available if you just need to sit in silence.
  • I’m sorry for your loss and the pain you’re going through but God understands your pain a lot more than I do. God is standing by and he will take care of you.
  • I’m praying fervently for that you will be surrounded with peace that surpasses all understanding during your time of bereavement. May the peace and grace of God rest upon you and your family during this difficult time.
  • I’m sorry to learn of your loss. I am sorry for your grief and pain but the clouds of grief won’t last forever. The sun will shine again.
  • In your time of bereavement, I’m praying for an extra measure of strength and courage to help you get through the days and nights ahead.
  • During your grief, I want to remind you that death may have stole your loved one but it can never steal the memories that you have. Keep the memory of your loved one ablaze.
  • I want you to know that I’m only a phone call away during your time of grief, I’m here to offer listening ear and to help wipe your tears away
  • I wish I could come up with the right words to bring your loved one back. I truly wish I had the power to take your pain away. Since I am unable to do either of those two things, I’m sending you flowers to help brighten your day.
