Letter of Sympathy Example to Family After Loss of Colleague


This is an example of a sympathy message you can send to the family of a colleague who has died.

Dear Family Member Name,

I am so sorry to hear the sad news about John and wish to offer you and your family my sincerest sympathy. I worked with John for many years and in addition to being a valued colleague, he was a dear friend.

John was a tremendous asset to our office and the entire staff had a great admiration and respect for his work and his accomplishments for our company.

If there is anything at all I can do to help during this very difficult time, please do not hesitate to contact me. I'm available via phone (111-111-1111) or email at yourname@email.com.

With my deepest sympathy,

Your Name
