I helped dd1 write the thank you notes to all the people who sent flowers, brought food, provided services, etc after Buddy passed away. So I get the Unhappy thank you notes. We even had to write one to my dbil for missing a class to escort the funeral procession from the church to the 20 miles to the road for the church. Normally they have a city LEO to escort to the city line; county LEO to the county line, if you go past one; a deputy of that county, etc. He took us from the church through town, into the county, into the 2nd county and to the road of the church.

Anyway - We wrote fairly large to help take up more space and wrote something like - the date at the top right and their name on the left then - Thank you for your thoughtfulness during our time of despiration. Your taking the time to ...(what they did or what they brought). meant so much to us. Thank you again and then signed it

For my dbil we wrote his name Thank you for the personal escort you provided for us from the church to (the road). We know the tole it took on you to do this for us and it did not go unnoticed. Your kindness and consideration was greatly appreciated. Love always and they signed it. (Those may not be the exact words but were pretty close.)

Hope that helps some. Sorry you're having to write unhappy thank yous.

Hope that helps some.
