Learn How To Craft Messages of Comfort at Green-Wood
We all struggle to find the right words when offering our condolences. We want to convey sympathy, admiration, and support. Why not take inspiration from another time?
Condolence letters of the nineteenth century were mainstays of life—missives of comfort written straight from the heart. Death educator Amy Cunningham will lead a practical guide to crafting healing messages. Along the way, she’ll share condolences written by luminaries including Thomas Jefferson, Emily Dickinson, Queen Victoria, Marcel Proust, and Ernest Hemingway.
