What to Write for Deceased Mother Condolences

Sympathy messages can help those who have lost someone to feel some comfort during the pain of grieving. This is especially important when someone has lost a close relative or good friend. When someone's mother dies, it's a huge loss.

Think about the importance of a mother in people's lives as you write your condolence message. Add something specific that you know about the deceased to show your admiration, then offer to give some form of support, even if it is just being willing to talk. Whether you use one of the following or just write a Bible verse, any kind words will likely be appreciated by the surviving children.

      I was writing a letter to a friend about her Mother. I was having some trouble coming up with words to express myself. But after reading some of the one liners you have shown us. Now I can always go back and see what to say. Thanks a lot.
