What to write when someone dies unexpectedly?

Words can be hard to come up with when someone you know unexpectedly loses their loved one. Here are some ideas  for writing:

1. "It must be really difficult. I’m so sorry for your loss." Sending this message expresses your condolences for their loss to your friend or family member. It's an easy and heartfelt way to send your condolences.

2. “I’m just a call or text away, anytime.” Your loved one may feel less alone if they know they can reach out to you at any time or by phone. If you agree with them, just be sure you're ready to answer the phone when they do. Making the offer and then not being able to follow through is pointless.

3. "In times like this, you shouldn't have to prepare meals for yourself."
It can be hard to muster the energy to prepare dinner and clean up afterward when you're grieving. Giving a pre-made meal or a gift card for delivery to a friend or family member can assist with that. Select their preferred restaurant for delivery or their favorite meal.

4. “I thought you could use some self-care.” Apart from preparing meals, scheduling self-care activities can be difficult when one is grieving or has experienced loss. You can purchase scented candles and bubble bath for your friend or loved one, or you can give them a spa gift card so they can have some alone time.

5. “I can’t believe this is happening, but we’ll get through it together.”
This message offers support and hope for the future, while also acknowledging how difficult the situation is.

Keep in mind that every person experiences grief in differently, so there is no one-size-fits-all method for expressing sympathy. The most crucial thing is to support your friend or family member in any way that they require it.

Embrace solace in profound words. Grief quotes for unexpected loss offer comfort, expressing emotions when words fall short. Check out the following comfort quotes when someone dies unexpectedly.
