Dear Sir/Madam,

This is to inform you that our beloved great-grandmother has suddenly passed away on 9th September 2015 at the evening in the City Hospital. Six months ago she had a stroke. Soon she went to coma. Her health was deteriorating since then. Her condition became severe from the morning of 9th September and at the evening the doctors declared her dead. The doctors have tried their best to save her. I am feeling extremely sorry for this and we have no words to express the despair caused by the loss of the head of the family.


Her funeral is arranged on 12th September 2015 at Silver Sand, California. The time is 10 a.m. You are requested to be present there before time. I hope you will be present on the day of the funeral.


Yours truly,

<Sender’s Name>
