When you or someone you love has suffered a loss, it can be difficult to find the appropriate words to express your sympathy and grief. To help we've compiled some example messages of condolence to assist you in writing your own card message to accompany with your sympathy flowers or funeral tribute. Our suggested funeral flower messages are there as a guide and can be customised as you wish.

A few things to keep in mind...
Make your message personal by sharing a favourite memory of the deceased or a reason why you will always remember them fondly.
Always be sensitive to the deceased's or the bereaved family's beliefs when composing a message of condolence. There's no need to compromise your own views, but it may not be the appropriate time to share them.
If you're really struggling with what to write, keep it short and simple. A few carefully chosen words are all you need to let someone know that they are in your thoughts.
