5 condolences: Hugs

Hugs! We hug to celebrate happy times and to get through tough times. We hug for hellos, for goodbyes, and for no reason at all. We cherish a loved one’s hugs, and we miss those hugs when they’re gone.

Today we share five condolence messages about great huggers.

1. Grandma, you are going to be missed by anyone who ever met you. You always made people feel special with your eyes lighting up when you were talking or listening, your smile said you loved life and your arms would be open for warm hugs. [Published in Bakersfield Californian]

2. Even though I was just a little toddler my fondest memory is of Mother Sue coming over and calling ” Yoo ! Hoo! and then taking me off with her to your house and smothering me with lots of hugs and kisses! I used to escape my house and go over just to see Mother Sue. [Published in Courier Press]

3. I am blessed to have known June while she was at Colonial Manor. She was a great lady who knew how to give great hugs when ever I came in to work on the weekends. [Published in York Daily Record & York Dispatch]

4. Tim was a great hugger…if you hadn’t seen him for awhile, then you got an even tighter hug. Many of Tim’s friends and his family will miss those hugs, we’ll miss Tim. [Published in Des Moines Register]

5. Jill was one of the sweetest people I have ever had the privilege of knowing. She always found the good in people and always had a hug for me when I needed one. [Published in Butler Eagle]

About Linnea

I joined Legacy.com in 2000 as an obituary writer. In the years since, I've done a little of everything for our Operations team, from content review to customer service to creating web pages for funeral homes to training new employees to my current position, Content Manager. I love this position, because I get to write little bits & longer pieces - whatever's needed at the moment - and I get to proofread a lot, satisfying my inner nitpicker. And I love being on the blog team, because I get to write interesting features for the blog. I love to write! In my spare time, I... can you guess?... write. I'm hoping that one day I can add "published novelist" to my bio. I also enjoy working in my vegetable garden and cooking, baking, canning, making ice cream, and pretty much anything else in the kitchen. I love to read, compete in trivia contests, and attempt to keep up with my Netflix queue.
