Dear (name of the Receiver),

I heard about your (type of pet), (name of pet) passing away (mention the day). It must be shattering for you and, especially, your kids to lose their companion and encounter death at such a tender age. (Describe in your words). (name of the pet) was the most disciplined and faithful (type of pet) I have ever met. (Describe your sympathy). He was so friendly with everyone that not once did I feel anxious in his presence.

It is unfortunate that he died, but death and loss are both parts of life and must be experienced to properly realize the taste of happiness when it comes back. (Describe your feelings). I know no other creature can replace (name of the pet). I hope you and your kids can find some consolation in the memory of the happy times spent in his company. (Cordially describe your greetings). Write to me if I can be of any help.

May God rest his soul in peace.

Subject: Letter conveying my condolences to you

Dear (name of the receiver),

I hope this letter finds you in good health. I came to hear about the death of your pet (name and type) passing away last night. I’m sorry for your loss. (Describe in your words). I am at a loss for words to describe the beautiful and happy creature that he was. Whenever I visited your house, unlike other guests he would be very comfortable with me. He always used to wag his tail and bark on seeing me entering the house. (Describe your feelings).

I realize it’s going to be difficult to move past this tragedy. (Describe your sympathy). But I believe that (pet name) is in a better place now and is gamboling around happy in his own company like the cheerful (pet type, e.g., dog) he was. (Cordially describe your greetings). I hope you will try to recover from his loss by remembering him for the positivity that entailed his existence.

May God bless his soul.
