Sympathy Cards and Notes of Condolence


Thornhill Florist Words of Sympathy


Sending flowers in memory of the deceased to the funeral home is a thoughtful way to demonstrate your bereavement and support of the family. When sending a sympathy card or note of condolence it is often difficult to know what to say or how to phrase your thoughts and feelings.


To help inspire you finding the right thing to say we have put together a collection of some of the better verses from around the internet.

Use it with funeral cards, condolence messages, bereavement verses, bereavement messages and condolences words.


We create custom funeral tributes, casket sprays, wreathes and sympathy arrangements. Please See our wide range of:

Sympathy and Funeral Flowers >>


Be sure to include the first and last name of each person associated with the gift that is sent, this will help avoid confusion for the family when they recognize those that sent an arrangement. When sending a gift from a group of people, specifically an office, be sure to include the name of the business, and the individual names that contributed to the gift.

You can insert any of the verses below into your sympathy card or note of condolence.


  1. Our hearts are heavy with sadness and tears, But our memories are full of the love and kindness you gave over the years. Missing you always.
  2. There are no goodbyes for us, wherever you are, you will always be in my heart.
  3. When the way comes to an end, then change. Having changed, you pass through.
  4. This is the comfort of friends: that though they may be said to die, yet their friendship and society are, in the best sense immortal, because they are ever present. William Penn.
  5. Another little flower for God's heavenly garden.
  6. Say not in grief he is no more but live in thankfulness that he was - Hebrew proverb.
  7. Everything that has a beginning has an ending. Make your peace with that and all will be well. - Buddhist saying.
  8. Before the sublime mystery of life and spirit, the mystery of infinite space and endless time, we stand in reverent awe.
    This much we know: we are at least one phase of the immortality of life.
    The mighty stream of life flows on, and, in this mighty stream, we too flow on...not lost...but each eternally significant.
    For this I feel: The spirit never betrays the person who trusts it. Physical life may be defeated but life goes on; character survives, goodness lives and love is immortal.
    - Col Robert G. Ingersoll
  9. Yesterday is a memory, tomorrow is a mystery and today is a gift, which is why it is called the present.
  10. You are in our thoughts and our prayers.
    But Not Forgotten
    I think no matter where you stray,
    That I shall go with you a way.
    Though you may wander sweeter lands,
    You will not forget my hands,
    Nor yet the way I held my head
    Nor the tremulous things I said.
    You will still see me, small and white
    And smiling, in the secret night,
    And feel my arms about you when
    The day comes fluttering back again.
    I think, no matter where you be,
    You'll hold me in your memory
    And keep my image there without me,
    By telling later loves about me.
    Dylan Thomas.
  11. Our thoughts go out to you at such a sad time.
  12. There is much to remember and much to be thankful for as we remember (Name) and the way he shared his/her life with those around him/her. Each of us gives gifts of ourselves to those we share life with. These are gifts that no one can take away. Though we are gone, these gifts remain with those to whom we have given them.
  13. God has called back one of his angels you will always be in our hearts.
  14. Rest in peace and know that we will never forget you.
  15. The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers and cities; but to know someone who thinks and feels with us, and who, though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden. - Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
  16. He/She is greatly missed, forever cherished and always remembered.
  17. All fondness unexpressed, All farewells unspoken, All smiles unseen, A waterfall of tears is not enough.
  18. We'll love him while we may,
    And for the happiness we've known,
    Forever grateful stay.
    But should the angels call for him
    Much sooner than we planned,
    We'll brave the bitter grief that comes And try to understand.
  19. I will remember you and love you forever
  20. What the caterpillar perceives is the end, to the butterfly is just the beginning.
  21. Your memory lives on in our hearts.
  22. A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam. And for a brief moment its glory and beauty belong to our world. But then it flies on again, and though we wish it could have stayed, we feel so lucky to have seen it.
  23. No words can fill the emptiness that we feel inside.
  24. Prayer of Faith
    We trust that beyond absence there is a presence.
    That beyond the pain there can be healing.
    That beyond the brokenness there can be wholeness.
    That beyond the anger there may be peace.
    That beyond the hurting there may be forgiveness.
    That beyond the silence there may be the word.
    That beyond the word there may be understanding.
    That through understanding there is love.
  25. Death brings a heartbreak that no one can heal, but you gave me memories that even death cannot steal.
  26. Do Not Stand At My Grave
    Do not stand at my grave and weep
    I am not there, I do not sleep
    I am a 1,000 winds that blow
    I am the diamond glints on snow
    I am the sun on ripened grain
    I am the gentle autumn rain
    When you awaken in the morning's hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled light
    I am the soft star that shines at night
    Do not stand at my grave and cry
    I am not there; I did not die.
  27. In god’s arms you can gently rest.
  28. Taken too soon, our lives will never be the same again.
  29. We were so lucky to have had you in our lives you taught us so much and we will miss you every day.
  30. When I am dead
    Cry for me a little
    Think of me sometimes
    But not too much.
    Think of me now and again
    As I was in life
    At some moments it's pleasant to recall
    But not for long.
    Leave me in peace
    And I shall leave you in peace
    And while you live
    Let your thoughts be with the living.
  31. Your endless journey has begun, your soul is now free, Find your peace and know I will never forget you.

    You can shed tears that he/she is gone,
    Or you can smile because he/she lived,
    You can close your eyes and pray that he/she will come back,
    Or you can open your eyes and see all that he/she has left.
    Your heart can be empty because you can't see him/her
