Childrens' Sympathy Cards to Vincent's Family

Here is a tiny sample of my 3rd grade students' Sympathy Cards to Vincent's family...

Each card is personal, thoughtful, and kind. Each card is unique. Each card was written (and illustrated) with love. The childrens' writings paint a beautiful picture of Vincent and who he was.

Dear Vincent's Family,
I am a new student, so I did not know him, but I am sorry that he died. I wish I had met him.

Dear Vincent's Family,
I am sorry that Vincent died. He was nice because he would play with me and my friends at recess. He helped me with my classwork. He was kind.

Dear Vincent's Family,
I am very, very sorry that Vincent passed away. I knew Vincent since 1st grade, he was very nice. Vincent was gentle with things. He was kind by letting people borrow things they needed. I know that you too have lots of wonderful memories of Vincent.

Dear Vincent's Family,
I am sorry that Vincent passed away. Vincent was kind. He helped me when I was sad. He helped me feel better when I didn't have a friend, and he would be my friend. Vincent was gentle, he never fought with anyone. He was nice, helped people when they needed help.

Dear Vincent's Family,
I'm sorry that Vincent died. I know that you will always have memories of him. I know that you love him no matter where he is. He will always be in your heart and looking over you. He's in a good place right now with God.
