A condolence letter is a must write on the death of a person that you know. It should be written on paper, preferably without any mistakes, as an e-mail or in your handwriting. You can see the sample below in which condolence letter is written to a cousin on the death of his mother, or we can say on the death of an aunt. You can show your support to your cousin through this letter and can ask him if we want any help.
Death of a family member is one of the most hurting experiences anyone has to go through. At this crucial time, the least you could help is by a few kind words and a little support. Remember to write this letter in the most helpful and supportive manner. This is the only time you can show your sincere concern for someone and their family. An aunt is also considered a very close relative in a family. An aunt is just like a mother in disguise. Losing an aunt can be a heartbreaking time for some people. You can not replace the lost, but you can always be there when the grieving need you. Remember that this is the only time you can prove your actual love support and care for the grieving family.
