"Personalized sympathy cards from our medical practice make us feel we are giving more personal messages to our patient's family during at time of great sadness."
"This card was perfect for a family members memorial service and a momento for the grandchildren."
"I like to have sympathy cards on hand. I wrote a nice sympathy sentence inside and signed my name. I picked the font and color to match the cover. Looks great! Easy!"
"I am so grateful that Shutterfly offers such a beautiful selection of cards and stationery. I ordered the Watercolor Botanicals design for my mother's memorial service, and was very pleased with the quality. The cards were especially beautiful on the pearl shimmer cardstock option. I do wish there was more room on the back of the card to accommodate all the details related to my mom's funeral services (and I selected a smaller, simpler font for readability and fit), but all in all I was satisfied with the final product. It helped honor my mom's memory very well."
"I ordered these for my grandmother's memorial. They came out beautifully. I used a black and white photo on the front and added another black and white photo on the inside cover with a hymn printed on the inside back cover. I really liked the ability to customize the cards, especially the font and font size. The cards are thick and come with envelopes. A good quality product I would order again."
Grieving can be tough for any person. Often, it is very hard to know the right words to say when someone has suffered a loss.

We are never prepared to lose the ones we love. When our friends or family have to deal with the unthinkable, it can be hard to know what to do. At the very least, a custom sympathy card can let them know that they are in your thoughts. You can create a card to help celebrate the life and joy of a person and to hopefully help your friend or family member work toward closure. If you are close, offer to lend an ear, run errands or cook meals. Babysitting or even just doing the laundry for someone directly affected by loss can be very helpful in some situations. Often, with grief, we don’t know who or how to ask for help. A card can remind someone that they are not alone.
