Losing a Friend or Loved one - Sending Sympathy Cards

No one escapes the effects of the loss of a loved one in life. This hub is dedicated to sharing some ideas of what you can put into a sympathy card for a person that has lost someone in their life. There is no way to take away the pain, but I can tell you first hand that getting a card can mean so much.

Whether your card is a store bought card, e-card, or homemade card, the gesture is so nice. If in doubt, do send a sympathy card to anyone that might need one. It can make more of a difference than you know. My hope is that if you are in need of some words to say, that you find what you are looking for here.

Adapt the messages by changing a few words in the ideas below, to create the perfect sentiment for your recipient.
