Conveying Your Condolences

As you prepare to send sympathy flowers, it can be challenging to find the right words to convey your condolences.

Here are some examples: 

Keeping it simple:

  • In Loving Memory of [Name of the deceased]
  • So Sorry For Your Loss

  • 含笑西方 (suitable for ladies)
  • 百世流芳   (suitable for ladies)
  • 音容宛在   (suitable for ladies)
  • 芳名不朽   (suitable for ladies)

Heartfelt messages:

If you prefer a longer, more heartfelt message to adequately convey your feelings of grief, you can consider these options:  

  • Thinking of you and your family, at this time of loss.
  • You are in our thoughts and prayers.
  • Our hearts and thoughts are with you as you mourn. 
  • Please accept our deepest condolences.
  • Words cannot even begin to express our sorrow. 
  • My heart goes out to you and your family at this difficult time. 
  • May peace and comfort find you at this difficult time. 
  • May the memories of [Name of the deceased] help you to find peace and comfort.

 

Please do remember to include a To and From in your card message, as the family of the deceased will collect these condolence cards in order to thank those who sent flowers.
