Dear Orin,

I am extremely shocked to know that your father is no more in the world. I am so sorry for your irreparable loss.

I have lost my words to condole you. Words will never express how sorry I am to hear about the death of your father. You and your family are always in my prayers at this difficult time. Please accept my condolences and let me know if you need any sort of help in this difficult time. 

I am praying to the almighty to give you the courage and strength to endure this heavy loss. Since death is common to all we have to be calm and patient. 

Very soon I am going to meet your family members.

With deep sympathy

Dear Tamim,

Yesterday I heard the sad news of your mother’s death in your letter. The news came to me as a thunderbolt. I couldn’t move and speak for a few minutes knowing the sorrowful news.

How can I believe and accept the news? I can still remember the smiling and loving face of your mother. You know how dear I was to Aunty. Whenever I went to your home, your mother always took great care of me. Aunty used to prepare my favourite dishes.

I know the death of a mother is a great and irreparable loss for a son. Your mother was your heart. I don’t know how to condole you in this grieving situation. Because words are never enough to condole a son who lost his mother forever. Praying to the Almighty for her departed soul.

You have younger siblings so you should be strong mentally to take care of your younger brother and sister. Tomorrow, I and my mother will come to your home.

Stay well and take care of yourself and your youngers.

Your saddened friend
