Dear [Recipients Name],

I write to thank you so much for your love and support during our time of loss.

It was so comforting to have you around. I appreciate you helping us with the preparations and your words of encouragement. It was not easy to come to terms with the death of our son, but you were there to give us a shoulder to lean on.

Thank you very much for your help.
