    Subject: Condolence for the mishap

    Dear James Russell,

    I have just heard about the death of your mother and I am feeling terribly sad for this regrettable incident. I do not have words to explain how much this sad news has hurt me. Though words cannot hold the power to heal this loss but I am writing this email to you to make you feel better.

    Your mother was very kind to everyone and she has been very affectionate towards me. She was very nice with all of us and has been doing great things to make you and all of your friends happy. She was a true mother and we will never forget her.

    However, as it is the will of God and one cannot do anything against it. Being the elder son, you should support your younger siblings at this hard time. I am always with you in this time of grief and I shall always be there if you need any help. I pray that may God give patience to you and your family members at this hard time.

    Yours sincere friend,

    Franklin Martin
