Death Of A Colleague’s Spouse

Dear Sarah,

It does not take a letter from me to tell you how sad we all are at Arthur’s passing. Although I never worked with him personally, I knew him as one of the most forthright and reliable people on the business scene, who could always be counted on to live up to his commitments and carry his share of responsibilities, no matter how heavy. Beyond that, of course, we extend deep sympathy to you for your loss and pray that you are comforted by family and loved ones nearby.

Four of us from the office will be attending the memorial service next week, representing just a few of the many businesspeople in the community who would like to pay our last respects to your husband.

With sympathy,
