#Sample 1. Letter of Condolence on the death of friend's mother


(Receiver's details) 

Date 10.10.2021

Dear .........., 

I got the news of your mother's death. As soon as I heard the news, all her memories from childhood till now were refreshed in my mind. Your mother was very gentle and cheerful. Everyone liked him because of his good nature. I still remember his smiling face. 

I know that no one can make up for the loss of a mother. But, God probably had this approval and we are all constrained before his will. I am with you in this time of unbearable sorrow. If you need any help from me let me know without any hesitation.

It is my prayer to God that your mother's soul rest in peace and you and the entire family get strength to bear this loss.

With inner sorrow,

Your friend,

Mr. Abraham Jordan,

Very sad to hear about the sudden death of your elder brother (his name). I know you two had a very close and you used to mention them often. I know that his age was not yet to leave this world. But, no one has control over death.

My sympathies are with you in this time of adversity. I can understand your sorrow very well. This mountain of sorrows that has fallen on you, may God give you the strength to bear them. Don't consider yourself alone, I am always with you and will try to meet you soon. 

May God grant his soul a place at his feet.

(Sender's details)

Dear Mr/Mrs .......... ........., 

I am shocked to hear the news of your husband's sudden death. We only met last week and we all spent so much time together. Your husband's energy, his positive thinking and plans for the future are still fresh in my mind. Who knew that meeting would be our last meeting.

Looking at both of you, it seemed that both of you were made for each other. But, who can avert it? What has passed cannot be brought back. No one can fill the void of your husband in your life. But dear friend, now the children are dependent on you and now you have to take care of them.

Wherever your husband is, he will also wish that you all be happy. So take care of yourself, I will come and meet you soon. My heartfelt sympathies are with your family and you. May his soul rest in peace.

With inner sorrow,

Your friend,
