votes

Hi, My friend's grandmother died just 2 days ago. I want to send him and his family a heartfelt message that I am thinking about them, I am praying for them, and hope for the best for him and his family. Do you have any suggestions what in spanish is appropriate to say. I know very little spanish, words here and there but not sentences or phrases. Help.
Thanks,
RM

James,
Again thank you very much for your time and effort. I really, really appreciate it.

Take care and I will do my best to study at least one hour a day so I can at least start replying in spanish.

I don't want to take too much of your time, but I just want to let you know that I am thinking of you and your family in these difficult times. I pray that you will be given strength, and with all my heart I wish you the best.

I know there are no words, hugs, or actions that can help you enough at this difficult time, but even so I want you to know that I have you and your family in my prayers and thoughts.

No quiero tomar mucho de tu tiempo, solo quiero dejarte saber que estoy pensando en ti y tu familia en estos momentos tan difíciles. Rezo porque reciban fortaleza y de todo corazón les deseo lo mejor.

Sé que no hay palabras, abrazos ni acciones suficientes que te ayuden en este momento tan difícil, pero aun así quiero que sepas que los tengo, a ti y tu familia, en mis oraciones y pensamientos.

I'm just making some minor corrections for Rosemarie. In a note such as this, it's best to use proper orthography.
