It is often difficult to find the words to express sympathy to a friend or family member who has just experienced the death of a loved one. Heartfelt condolences can bring comfort to those left behind, yet expressing your sympathy inappropriately may hurt the person you most want to help. Thinking through exactly what you want to say ahead of time can help you navigate through these times of sorrow and grief. Preparing words of sympathy may seem like excessive planning, however, knowing what you want to say and how to say it can ease your way during times of sorrow.

You know the old saying - "The only two things in life that are for certain are death and taxes."
Taxes - We all prepare for the inevitable tax day of April 15. Annually we spend time, money, and personal resources on the preparation of taxes. No one likes it but we all do it.
Death - More and more of us are planning for this inevitability. In a fraction of the time just one year of tax preparation takes you could have you funeral or memorial services planned and paid for.
