Condolences may also acknowledge the writer's sorrow. Examples of this type of phrase include, "Words can not express the sadness we feel" and "At moments like this words are inadequate to express our sadness."

Beliefs and concepts of faith can also be expressed in condolence phrases. These types of condolence sentences often include phrases from religious texts, such the Bible. Matthew 5:4 states that "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted." Spirituality can also be implied with condolence phrases such as "Our thoughts and prayers are with you." For more formal condolences to an acquaintance or business associate, appropriate phrases include, "We are sorry for your loss" and "Please accept our heartfelt condolences. Our thoughts are with you and your family."

Personal expressions, such as, "May the love of family and friends help you through this time" and "May strength prevail during this time," offer condolences in a heartfelt way.
