Dear Name (Your Friend Name)
The news of the sudden and untimely death of your wife came as a great shock to us. Your wife was really a goddess in the widest sense of the term. Her amiable temperament, sweet tone and a liberal attitude had endeared her to all her neighbours, friends and relations. What is more, you never felt that you had a big family to support for she so cleverly and deftly managed the household affairs. While it is an irreparable loss to you, your children have lost their closest friend and guide. May God give you and your children strength to bear the loss !
My wife was deeply touched to hear the news and has been weeping since day before yesterday. They were good friends and always lived and loved like real friends. May the soul of the departed rest in peace.
With deepest sympathy from both of us,
