Tragic events are very usual in human life. A letter of sympathy is written at the moment of sudden/tragic/sad occasion to sympathize with the victim. Different types of tragic events are elaborated below-
- Financial Loss
- Failure in Examination
- Accident (road, air, etc)
There is a great difference between the letter of sympathy and the letter of condolence. The value of life is more important than property.
The loss of property can be recovered in any way but the loss of life can’t be made up. Despite that, the reader gets consolation to form the letter of sympathy.
Some guidelines for the preparation of a letter of sympathy are mentioned below-
- Regrets on getting the tragic/sad news.
- Inquiries about recovery
- Offer some help
- Repetition of sympathy and good wish.
Sympathy letter sample for business loss
It is very distressing to know about the loss you have suffered in the business deal last month. However, it is true that you are fortunate enough that the damage was of a minor nature. I believe that with great efficiency and proper care you could have avoided the loss.
Now you should contact the insurance company immediately. Despite that may I provide you some financial help. I will be very happy if the answer is positive for me as soon as possible.
With good wishes-
