Writing Notes Of Sympathy

Sending a store-bought sympathy card when someone dies is better than not acknowledging a death at all. A sincerely written note or letter of condolence is infinitely better. It is more personal and tells the recipient that you are thinking of them more deeply then just a “Hallmark moment.”  Because I am a writer, people expect me to express my thoughts on the death of someone with perfectly chosen, heart-felt sentiments and so may acquaintances of yours. Writing a letter or note of condolence is not difficult. Express your thoughts conveying what you feel. It need not be long/Jennifer Rova, Writing North Idaho. More here. (Photo: Writing North Idaho)
Question: Do you write notes to go with the sympathy cards you send out?
