Simple and traditional messages

If death really is the end, then [NAME]'s was like that of the best movie ever made. What an extraordinary life, lived by the most wonderful person. I'm so sorry for your loss.

There's no space on the gift card to truly express what [NAME] meant to me and everyone whose lives [HE/SHE] touched.

Thinking of you and your family today. Your [RELATIVE] was the benchmark for going above and beyond for their loved ones. Always here for you, always inspired by what a great person [HE/SHE] was.

[HE/SHE] will be at peace now, proud of a life well lived and the amazing human beings he raised.\n\nYou are testament to [HIS/HER] greatness, and we're here for you in anyway that you need us.

Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak knits up the o-er wrought heart and bids it break. Whenever you're ready I'm here for you: at the end of a call, or in a text, or in each other's arms. So sorry for your loss.
