Sympathy Cards from Hallmark

When a friend, co-worker or loved one suffers the loss of someone dear in their life, it's often hard to know what to say or how to help. Grief is personal, and we try to figure out the most comforting way to help them. Whether it's a sudden loss, or a loss after a long illness, those left behind can feel helpless, lonely and devastated. It can be a challenge to strike the right tone for connection and comfort—but it is important to reach out and say something during this difficult time. Let them know you are there for them during this trying time. Brighten their day with your kind, heartfelt gesture.
