A condolence speech is made when someone loses their loved ones or goes through some heavy loss. In condolence speech, you pay your sympathies to a person and try to calm them through your kind words. Condolence must be made to show to the person that you also can feel their pain and hence that person is not alone in the journey of hardships. Most of the time, condolence speeches are made to calm a person and encourage him to not lose hope in times of hardships. Tell them that you stand with them through every thick and thin. 

How do you start a condolence speech?

Condolence speeches are usually short and compact.  It is not recommended at all that you write a lengthy condolence speech. Since the person is going through a lot, the only purpose of your speech should be to make him calm somehow. Here are some steps for you to draft a short speech. 

  1. Outline the structure of the speech
  2. Highlight the main idea of speech
  3. Polish the words until you have achieved the level of satisfaction with what you have and what you need
  4. Practice the speech and use the motivating and encouraging tone

Follow these steps to draft a short speech. The tone of your speech should be encouraging and fruitful for the person. Try to stay honest with what you say to the affected person. Choose real words. It would be best if you make the person calm through the reality-based facts. Below are attached some sample condolence speeches for your help and ease.
