Condolence Message Samples Letter for Young Friend

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Sanborn,

Yesterday I learned of the unfortunate and untimely death of your son and my friend Jacob. There are no words to describe the utter grief that I am feeling right now, and I cannot possibly imagine the shock and sorrow that has been thrust on your family as well.

I will always remember fondly the experiences he and I had playing in various rock bands, sports teams, and hanging out together. It is true that he was taken from us too soon, and I think you share my sentiment that it feels a little unfair that such a smart and talented young man's life has ended with so much living left to do. It is my firm belief that bad things that happen to good people serve a greater good, and Jacob's death will, I believe, teach us all something if we only let ourselves be taught. Right now, we all are trudging through the mourning process, but with support from friends and family, I think we can find ourselves whole again.

During this difficult time for your family, I would like to extend a helping hand if you will have it. I think of you two as a second family for me, so please don't hesitate to call me for any reason. One thing that I feel would honor his memory and help me through this process is if you would allow me to say a few words at his funeral. Please accept my sincerest condolences and know that I am here with you through it all if you need me.

Yours in mutual grief,

Rodney Patton
