Dear Anxious Friend of the Bereaved,


Are you speechless when it comes to writing a sympathy card?

You’re not alone.

One of the hardest things can be to know what to say to someone who has lost a beloved family member or friend.  And sometimes you just don’t know what to say.

I know.

As a physician, I’ve had to overcome my own insecurities and shyness to help the grieving…

One patient and her son stand out in my memory.  This lovely lady was in her 80s when I first met her.  As a social worker she had adopted a special needs child.  He grew into a fine young man, with compassion and a tender heart.

Sadly he had a sudden death.  Although he lived beyond his life expectancy, it was still hard for everyone who knew him. 

And yes, I struggled with the right words.  In a sympathy note and in person.

I wish I had had a book that would help me to find the right words.
