Is there a way of showing sympathy besides just sending a card?
I have sent a sympathy card to my friend over the loss of her spouse. Is there something else that I can do to show my sympathy?
It is always a difficult time when a loved one passes away. For some, showing sympathy through words and attending a memorial service captures the feelings and sympathy in an appropriate manner. For others, words simply do not have enough meaning or passion to proclaim the feelings and respect shared for the loved one. Finding a concrete way to show honor and respect for the memory of the departed is a way to promote personal healing and remembrance.
eCondolence.com has several options available to help you give something specific to offer tribute and honor for the deceased. In the SEND section of the website, there are several options, including sending flowers or a food basket, to make sure that your friend knows that you remember them and that you care.
Some people will show respect by doing something that serves as an ongoing memorial. A donation to a favorite organization or charity, an online memorial page, a listing in an online memorial wall, or planting a tree are just some of the ways that you can show sympathy to your friend.
