There is nothing specific you can say to people in these circumstances, but it is important to consider that the suddenness of it might make them more vulnerable and sensitive.

What should I say when someone dies unexpectedly?
I've enjoyed sharing original messages to write in cards for over 8 years. You can send me a thank you card if you find my words helpful.

There are also cliched and possibly offensive phrases to avoid. Thinking of messages of sympathy can be a difficult process. Sympathy cards present a unique challenge in that they are for people who need comfort and support.
