One of the most difficult tasks in life is to find proper words to express condolences to someone you know. In case of death of an acquaintance, sending your condolences in the form of a sympathy card is acceptable. Write a sympathy card thoughtfully so that you can properly express your sorrow to those who are mourning the loss without coming across as inappropriate as death is a very delicate matter and, as such, the 'dealing with it' part has to be handled with utmost care. Here are some sympathy verses that can give solace to the family members, friends and other people close to the deceased in these tough times of dealing with their loss.
Meaningful Sympathy Verses for Death
While writing a sympathy card, you can use appropriate sympathy quotes, which convey your message effectively. Keep in mind, your message should be sympathetic and reflecting your personal attachment with the deceased person. Some examples are given below.

You can also write some spiritual messages such as,
God is here for comfort, ask and he will bring you peace.
We ask God to send his blessings for you during this tough time.
Our blessings and prayers surround you with peace.

You and your family are in our prayers.
God gave us a true brother/sister who remains with us through the rest of our lives, so close, yet not with us in body any longer.
You can make them feel comfortable by adding some sympathy poems,
"Sharing in your sorrow
Thinking of you, and wishing
I could be there
To hold your hand."
"Thinking of you
Wishing you hope
In the midst of sorrow,
Comfort in the midst of pain."
"May peace and hope
Be yours, today and always."

"Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us everyday,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear."
"Death leaves a heartache
No one can heal;
Love leaves a memory
No one can steal."
"He/she left before you
A place to prepare
In the shelter
Of our Lord's care
In the sorrow you bear."
By choosing the appropriate sympathy verses, you can help the grief-stricken people find strength, solace and comfort.
