Our column today is about what to say in condolence cards for co-workers in your workplace.
What I didn't say in the column was this: When you have the chance to sign a communal card for a co-worker, be it condolence, birthday or retirement, always take the opportunity. Sometimes people think they'll just write a longer, personal card in the future. And that's great if it happens. But what often happens with me is that I have the good intention and then life intervenes. The private card never gets written.
So if you have the chance, sign the card.
