Thank Someone For Expressions of Sympathy

Sample Letter #1

We deeply appreciated your thoughtful card and beautiful flowers. They were wonderful symbols of your friendship that means so much to us. We are looking forward to returning to our daily routine soon and spending time with friends like you.

Sample Letter #2

Thank you for the beautiful flowers you brought after my surgery. I must confess I was a little depressed with this recent turn of events, but your thoughtfulness brightened my day. It is at times like these that one truly values good friends.

I deeply appreciate your friendship and I don't think my recovery would have been so rapid without it. It means a great deal to be surrounded by people who truly care. I will always be grateful for your thoughtfulness.

Sample Letter #3

Thank you for the staff's kind letter at my mother's passing. John and I have appreciated the care they gave her during those last difficult days, and the letter reminded us that we have some dear friends at the Springfield Nursing Home. Mother would want you to know that you made her feel very much at home during her stay there, and we will always be grateful to you for your many kindnesses.

Sample Letter #4

John and I want you to know how much we appreciated the support you gave and the beautiful flowers you sent to our son's funeral. Our grief would be much harder to handle without the kindness and support of friends like you. Johnny was a very sweet, loving son, and we are very grateful he was a part of our family. He will always be with us in loving memories. Thank you so much for your expressions of love and sympathy.
