Words of condolences letters for the passing of a mother are so important to send. There are few other losses as great as the death of a parent. Find a good sample condolence letter and then make it your own by filling in specific details about the specific person.
Last week we heard that your mom died suddenly. Joseph, we are so sorry. To lose your mother this way must be the most difficult thing to experience.
We both sincerely feel that your mother was one of the most charismatic, influential, intuitive people we've ever met. It is tragic that depression so often comes with a gifted and complex mind, like your mothers. We are so very deeply sorry that her inner battles and struggles overwhelmed her.
Your mother's love for the wilderness and nature inspired us to move out of the city. Perhaps you and Caleb would enjoy spending time on the property your mom inspired me to buy? If so, please, come out for a week, a weekend or even just a day and take some time to remember the things your mother loved and all the things that made her so special.
If you need help getting things organized and moved out of her house, we are available on the weekends. I will call you about arranging a time.
In the meantime, please accept this gift basket, I know it won't compare to the scrumptious muffins your mom used to make, but I hope it gives you some sustenance in this terrible and sad time.
With love and remembrance,
George and Martha
