The demise of any member of the family is a traumatic experience. At this moment, in all the societies and cultures of the world, the near and dear once gather around the bereaved family. It is of immense consolation to the family members, who have lost someone. It helps them to overcome their grief. Even a firm can send a condolence letter to its employee with the intention to sympathize.
Here is a sample business condolence letter:
Crystal Building and Construction Company,
Mr. Paul Whitman
24th May, 2010
Dear Mr. Paul,
It was with deep sorrow that we came across the news of the sad demise of your wife. It is a very difficult period in your life and we know that no word can heal the wound but it is the destiny which is not in our hands.
Take solace in the fact that “whom god loves dies young”. Your wife was a very genuine and kind person and it will off course be difficult to fill the void in your life created by her death, but you will have to be patient as your kids are still young. For their sake you will have to put up a brave front.
Thus, we all at the Crystal Company, pray to god to give the piece to the soul of your wife and give you the strength to bear the loss. We all are with you and if you need any help, please let us know.
On behalf of all the company staff, I extend our condolences to all your family members.
