Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there. I do not sleep. I am A THOUSAND WINDS that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning’s hush, I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the sort starts that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die – Mary Elizabeth Frye

If you’re struggling to know what to write in a sympathy card, you could follow this format:

  1. A condolence message: I’m so sorry for your loss; Our hearts are breaking for you; I was so sad to hear.
  2. Explain how you knew the person who died: I worked with; I played netball with; I grew up with.
  3. Show your appreciation for the person who died: I have the best memories of; What a kind and loving person; I will never forget when.
  4. Offer your help: We’ll take care of your mowing for as long as you need; I’d like to cook you a meal every Wednesday; Can I help by walking Scooter in the mornings?
  5. A meaningful quote: The soul would have no rainbow, had the eyes no tears (John Vance Cheney); Only tears can heal. (Oscar Wilde); This is my wish for you. Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

Here is an example:

I am so sorry to hear about your mum’s passing.

I’ll never forget her kindness when we worked together at the software company – she was always the first to extend her friendship to new employees, and it made all the difference to me on my first day. She became one of my closest colleagues, and I will miss her so much.

I’d love to help with catering for the memorial service, as I have some of your mum’s favourite recipes, and I’d love to share those with everyone.

I hope you’re surrounded by comforting hugs. If I can help in any other way, please let me know.


It goes without saying that everyone experiences grief differently. So, don’t say you know how they feel – you don’t, actually. And, refrain from giving advice – just because something worked for you doesn’t mean it will work for them.

Avoid religious content unless you are sure they are on the same spiritual page as you. As much as you might want to give them access to the beliefs that support you, do respect their sovereignty and give them the simple gift of your love instead.
