Sympathy Card Messages for the Loss of a Father

A simple message from the heart will be the best message you can give to someone who has lost a father. Take some cue from our Sympathy Card Messages for the Loss of a Father. 


I am your father’s secretary,
but since the day he accepted me to work for him,
he never treated me as his secretary.
He treated me as his own daughter.
He was so good to me that I won’t be able
to forget him until the day I’d die.
If ever you need me, just give me a call.
It would be an honor to help you.
Please accept my sincere condolences.

Words can’t express the sorrow we felt
when we learned that your father has passed away.
Your father showed us vast kindness that we won’t be able to forget him.
Please accept our warm sympathy.

We saw how you look up to your father
and how you get your strength from him.
Now that he’s gone, you are showing everybody
how you handle the loss of your inspiration.
You have made your father proud.

They say, a man’s can be measured by “how did he live” and “what did he give”.
For all the things your father has done to me,
I can say that your father is a worthy person.
If ever you need my help, just let me know.
I’d be willing to help you.
Please accept my sincere condolence.

Your father left you too soon.
But always remember that we are still here for you.
We will help you struggle the days and accept the reality.
