The loved ones have had time to absorb their sorrow and often they are a remaining spouse, parents or a sibling. These words will bring shared comfort - reminding them that they are not alone.
The passage of time cannot diminish all the sorrow of losing a loved one. Know that you continue to be held in the thoughts and prayers of those who remember with you.
