Even still, sending a consolation message after 100 days of mourning is a considerate, thoughtful, and memorable way of expressing your sympathy for someone close to you.

If you are having a hard time, please use our list of 100 days death anniversary quotes and sayings to get you started.

How Do You Observe The Death Anniversary?

Suffering a terrible loss in the form of the death of a loved one can weigh on the heart and mind of a person, long after the funeral.  Therefore, along with attending the viewing, funeral, or a house gathering, sending some kind of sympathy message several months after the cause of their grief will show how highly you regard their feelings.

Whether you choose to send a text message, email, or phone call, any communication method will be sufficient to convey your message. Without a doubt, the best way to seem genuine in your condolences is with a carefully chosen, personally tailored, handwritten message in a card. It could be a Hebrew Proverb, a selection from the Bible, or your own thoughts. No matter what- it will be appreciated.
