Condolence letter to your friend on the death of his/her mother.
20, Budhwar Peth,
I am shocked to receive the grievous news of your mother. It is unbelievable. She was so happy and healthy when I last visited you. How could this happen? All of my family members are also wondering.
But death is the ultimate truth that we have to accept. The reasons behind it are not known to anyone. As Shakespeare has said and we have to acquiesce, ‘As flies to wanton boys/Are we to the gods/They kill us for their sport.’
The living ones have to reconcile with the facts of life. So, do not please lose your heart. Her memory will always guide us, inspire us, and give us solace amidst the odds of life.
May God rest her fine soul in peace.
