When someone we know loses a loved one, it can be hard to know what to say. Knowing that he is in pain, we want to comfort him, and let him know that we are thinking of him, but we are afraid of making him say the wrong thing. While many of us find it difficult to express compassion for death, we shouldn't let that stop us from reaching. Knowing that other people are there to offer support is necessary for someone who is suffering. Simply putting it, it is better to say something than nothing at all. The purpose of showing sympathy to the person who has lost their loved one is to show them that you care about them. You can express how much you will miss the deceased one and share a positive thing or a positive memory about them. The most crucial message that needs to be sent is that you care about the individual and you are willing to help them.
The comfort level and relationship you shared with the individual who is mourning for his loss will help you in determining how you express sympathy at the death of a loved one. There is no right or wrong method to express condolences, what matters is the sentiment of the individual. You can use the following phrases to express your grief for the loss of the person -
· I’m sorry for your loss.
· He/she was a wonderful person
· Share a memory of the person who died
· This must be so hard for you
While writing a condolence message, the acknowledgement of the loss of that person is of absolute necessity. We must sympathise with the person at loss as well. Writing a message or anecdote about the deceased person can be a good choice, and it offers emotional and practical support as well. One must remember that sending a condolence message is simply to let your loved one know that you care for them and are by their side in their time of need.
Many people are frightened of saying something "wrong" to someone who has recently lost a loved one because they believe that it might hurt the sentiments.

You should communicate from a place of love and compassion, and you should be honest about the circumstance.
· Don't let the person who is in grief believe that their loved one has died.
