What’s the best way to offer condolences in a group sympathy card?

When a colleague or friend passes, or is bereaved, it is a very difficult time. Not least because many factors affect the grieving process. One thing is essential for the bereaved - the love and support from all who knew the person who passed.

Immediate family will provide the closest and most immediate support. There is an important role too for work colleagues, friends, community, church or club members. It is how this happens and what to say that many can find difficult when ‘sorry for your loss’ isn’t enough.

Here are some pointers to navigate this tricky topic:
  1. Sympathy expressed through your personal connections is a great comfort.
  2. Insight into life outside the home is an immense help in the grieving process
  3. Know when to offer condolences - an understanding of the five stages of grief will be a good start point
  4. Be mindful of circumstances and context reinforces the nature of the group’s support
  5. Be true to the person and your relationship with them. This helps keep positive memories alive.
  6. Recalling special moments is a source of great comfort, especially in the longer term.
  7. A positive memory helps all cope with the loss. The bereaved and all those who knew, interacted with, and loved the person who has died.

A Thankbox online sympathy card sends condolences to the bereaved in an easy and comprehensive way. It delivers initial support and longer-term comfort.

A permanent reminder of an important part of the life of the loved one who has passed is of great value. Here's a resource that may give further insight into the best way to provide condolences as a group.

Someone passing away is a traumatic and private event. Is my online Thankbox group sympathy card private and secure?

Only someone with the unique link can view a Thankbox. The final Thankbox only becomes visible to all contributors when it's paid for and sent.

It is completely private and invisible to search engines. Thankbox’s servers are compliant with current best practice security protocols and policies.

What are the benefits of an online group sympathy card?

A traditional paper card is perfect for those closest to the bereaved. It allows for an intimate (and immediate) one-to-one message. This is important at a time of most shock.

For a group - coworkers, community members, sports or hobby groups, the church - the time for support comes a little later. An online sympathy card, like a Thankbox is ideal because it:
  1. Allows everyone to contribute, wherever they are in the world at the time of need. All that’s needed is an internet connection. 
  2. The more that sign, the more authentic the condolences. This provides greater comfort and aids the healing process.
  3. Allows for complete freedom of expression. With no message or word limits a Thankbox doesn’t restrict anyone in what they want to say and how they say it.
  4. Provides for personal reflection.  Video, photos and GIFs keep precious moments, memories and events alive.
  5. Lasts forever. A Thankbox is always there, a simple click away. 
  6. If appropriate, provides a collection from the group as standard
