How should you express your sympathies? You should communicate the way you normally do after hearing the news. You will need to use your judgement, not everyone wants to be surrounded by people while they are mourning.

If you are very close, after your initial message, you should let them know you are on your way over, and that you want to help. If you don’t want me to come, it won’t hurt my feelings. People think the grieving person doesn’t want to hear about their loved one.

Feel free to talk about how they affected your life, how you’ll miss them, what they meant to you, and use the deceased person’s name. Actions instead of words are a hug, hold their hand, cry with them, bring a meal, and do the dishes.

In other words, don’t try to fix things or give them what worked for you. Things will feel different in time, these are not helpful comments. Even if you both share the same faith, and are confident that the loved one is in heaven, your friend does not need to hear that right now.

Communication is easy to access in a modern age. Reach out to your friends and family members who are most affected when you hear about someone’s death.

Comment on the post, then send a text or direct message with a personal note. Drop off flowers at your neighbor’s house, use the method you typically use, email a coworker, text a friend, call a relative and so on.

A card, letter, or gift is the traditional expression of mourning. A personal note can be included in sympathy gifts ordered online.

If you attend the funeral or any other memorial event, you should express your sympathies to the family when you first meet them.

They will have a lot of support in the weeks leading up to the funeral and the weeks following. The grieving person is left with a huge hole in their life as everyone else moves on. It will be difficult for a friend to remember the anniversary of death, so take the effort to be there for them, whether by phone, text, in person, or by sending a note or gift.
