words of sympathy for loss of child

Losing a child is one of the most tragic things that could happen to anyone. A parent having their son or daughter taken from them will likely be the most painful experience that could possibly be imagined. The grief will be long lasting and change the lives of the family involved forever.

If you are unlucky enough to know a parent, or parents, going through the loss of a child you may want to reach out and show you are there for them if they need you. But trying to find the right words during such a traumatic time is incredibly tricky. A condolence or sympathy card is always a touching gesture but needs to have considered and thoughtful wording. You don’t want to cause offence by saying the wrong thing.

But at the same time you shouldn’t be put off offering sympathy. A message of love that speaks of how sorry you are and the support you can give will always be appreciated. For the parents, just knowing that friends and family are thinking of them whilst they go through such an awful time can alone be comforting. So if you are considering not sending a card or reaching out please don’t be afraid to.

However, there are a few things to be wary of. In your message you should avoid phrases or topics such as:

  • It was there time to go
  • You must be relieved their suffering is over
  • You can still have more children
  • It happened for a reason
  • God always has a plan

If you are still struggling and aren’t sure what to say or write then try one of the messages below. They should either provide inspiration to write your own or can be copied directly as they are. Just remember to speak from the heart and your card and message will be warmly received.
