50 ways to give condolences when someone dies

Having to say goodbye to a loved one that has passed is a difficult passion to be in. A new hole has been ripped into the departed’s loved ones that will not be so easily mended. That is why it is important to take special care to give condolences and say something meaningful to the people closest to the beloved deceased.

Saying generic things like “Sorry for your loss” and “S/He’s in a better place now” fail to give comfort and understanding to those hurting the most. Instead, it is best to say something that hold value. Words that describe the person that has died while still addressing the pain in the present. Here are 50 different ways to give condolences to the spouse, kids, and parents in regards to a loved one that has recently passed on.
