”LauraLynn are honored to partner with Irish Urn’s Memorial Tree and Irish Trees initiative this year. Planting a tree in memory of a loved one is a very compassionate act that lasts a lifetime, and we are so grateful that this kind act will also support the work that we do here in Ireland’s only children’s hospice. Creating lasting memories and moments is a huge part of what we do in LauraLynn, making this a lovely way for people to support the specialized care and support which we provide to children with life-limiting conditions and their families across Ireland.” – Kerry McLaverty, CEO, LauraLynn.

How do I know what to write in a sympathy card or condolence message?
It is always very difficult to write a sympathy card or condolence message. However, we can offer some simple tips and advice to help make it a bit easier for you.
It is best to keep sympathy messages relatively short and simple. This can help ensure that your message seems heartfelt and honest. Your condolence message doesn’t have to be grammatically perfect or particularly poetic, as long as it is sincere and genuine. Don’t spend too long trying to get the words exactly right.
It can be helpful to share your own experiences with grief as this can demonstrate empathy as well as sympathy. If you knew the deceased personally, you can share fond memories of them. Illustrate how they made a positive impact on you, express gratitude for having known them and highlight their good qualities. Finally, try to avoid the use of cliches and platitudes so you don’t appear insincere or uncaring.

How do I make sense of my grief or the grief of a loved one?
