condolence message on death of friend

A life without a good friend is waste. As we all have that one friend whom we can’t live without. Someone who picks us up whenever we feel low, who takes care of us like a family member. Such friends are rare but they still exist. A person who has lost a friend like this would be devastated.

From school to college, friends become an integral part of the family. They stay close to us. They know every single detail of our lives, from the stupid ones to the serious ones. Friends were there to witness our first heartbreak and help us pass through that difficult times. They were there to share the mutual punishment by the teachers. They were there to share the lunch boxes. They were always there in the sweet memories of childhood and teenage years. And the adulthood, where everyone was busy in their lives dealing with their own problems. Friends where there to motivate us and make life fun.

Losing a friend can make someone feel that life is not worth living for or push them to depression. Because, imagine a life where you have no one who you can rely on and share the deepest secrets of your lives. It’s tough, isn’t it? Yes, indeed. So try to help that person who has lost a true friend by sending inspiring messages. You can take help from our condolence quotes to help that person to feel better and pass through the difficult phase of their life. You can copy and edit the quotes to fit your situation. Your words can heal somebody and help them understand the situation and move forward in life.

Friendship and love are the only things more powerful than death. Even if you don’t see your friend again, your bond will exist forever.

You cannot stop loving your friend because he’s dead, especially if he was better than anyone alive, you know?

Nothing endears so much a friend as sorrow for his death. The pleasure of his company has not so powerful an influence.

Love transcends all boundaries. It allows people to continue loving after death, even if they can’t see their friends anymore. 

The comfort of having a friend may be taken away, but not that of having had one.” The memories of your friend will never fade away.

Carrying on your friend’s legacy is a dutiful task. Trying to live a lesson they taught through their way of life is a way to honor them.

Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day… unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed, and very dear.

On the death of a friend, we should consider that the fates through confidence have devolved on us the task of a double living, that we have henceforth to fulfill the promise of our friend’s life also, in our own, to the world.

Words seem so feeble in moments like these. Life is so precious, and death such a thief. The depth of your pain I cannot comprehend, but I’ll stand alongside you in the darkness, my friend. Love is a bond that death cannot part. Gone from your arms, but still held in your heart.

He who has gone, so we but cherish his memory, abides with us, more potent, nay, more present than the living man.

You will lose someone you can’t live without, and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through.

Every deceased friend is a magnet drawing us into another world.

The bond between friends cannot be broken by chance; no interval of time or space can destroy it. Not even death itself can part true friends.

We all lose friends… we lose them in death, to distance, and over time. But even though they may be lost, hope is not. The key is to keep them in your heart, and when the time is right, you can pick up the friendship right where you left off. Even the lost find their way home, when you leave the light on.

Some people come into our lives and leave footprints on our hearts and we are never, ever the same.

Love is stronger than death even though it can’t stop death from happening, but no matter how hard death tries it can’t separate people from love. It can’t take away our memories either. In the end, life is stronger than death.

When someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.

Tell your friend that in his death, a part of you dies and goes with him. Wherever he goes, you also go. He will not be alone.

While we are mourning the loss of our friend, others are rejoicing to meet him behind the veil.
