People are shocked and saddened when one of their coworkers or coworkers passes away while your company employs them. A letter of condolence and a notification of the employee’s death are common occurrences.
If you’re having trouble crafting your own, take a cue from the following examples.
Sample 1: Condolence letter to the family of an employee who has died
