Your wife was a tremendous gal. We enjoyed her company on so many occasions and my wife always spoke of her in the highest regard. We always commented on how gracious and helpful she was to everyone and how she shunned any praise for what she just did naturally.
One of my fondest memories of her is all the help she gave us when we first moved into our present home. She was such a tremendous help and my wife and I both agree that we never would have been settled in so quickly without her tireless efforts. We will never forget that act of extreme kindness. I know that life will not be the same without her for you and us as well. She was one of those special people who on their passing you wonder how you will get along without them. I know she would want us to honor her memory by keeping our spirits up and moving on, as difficult as that will be.
Please extend our sympathy to your entire family. You will all be in our thoughts and prayers.

Your wife was one of those people who do so much for others and never expecting anything in return. She was always volunteering and heading up one project after another without any signs of growing weary. I will always remember her for her stamina and determination.
I know that you will have the strength to get through this very sad and difficult time. If I can be of any help, do not hesitate to call upon me.

Sympathy verses are a great way to add a nice touch to a message of sympathy. These sample verses can be used in expressing your thoughts to someone on the loss of a wife ...
We have many women who make up our lives
Mother, sister, grandmother and daughter
But the one that we call wife is the one
who we attach our heart and live as one
With the solemn oath that until death do we part
God gives us many gifts in life, parents, children
even friends; But the special gift is in a blessed
union to the one true love of our lives
That is the one that we call wife
Lucky is the man who finds that special woman
The one true love from which all love springs
The joy of children that we call our own
I am so grateful for that one woman I found
That I chose to be my wife top

An Ode To My Wife
If I could just turn back the time
To when I heard you say,
That I could be your shining prince
And all the dragons slay
I'd build a castle on the hill
So all the world could see,
The lovely princess that I chose,
To live and die with me.
If I could just turn back the time
And start my life anew,
I'd plant some roses near the paths
That I have led you through
There'd be no thorns to pierce your heart,
No tears to dim your eyes,
I'd leave no stones to bruise your feet,
There'd be no sad goodbyes
But Father Time will not turn back
The hours that passed away,
I can't remove the thorns and rocks
From all those past gone days;
I cannot live my life again
But dragons I would slay,
If I could be your shining prince
For only one more day.
By T.C. Ring
We've shared our lives these many years.
You've held my hand; you've held my heart.
So many blessings, so few tears
Yet for a moment, we must part.
The memories you've given me
Are times I've shared with my best friend
I'll hold them, love, right here they'll be
Until we share our lives again. top
