I've begun to suspect that I might have the sales version of the Ring curse attached to me. Not that I pass away (obviously) but that I'm most like the videotape in that prospects will lose someone close to them after taking a meeting with me.
In the last 30 days, 5 different people have lost the following people in their lives within a week or two of our meeting: husband, father, daughter, brother-in-law, and another husband.
In all seriousness, does anyone have any suggestions on wording a condolence message? It's an odd place to be where you can't overdo it since it would seem insincere seeing that I barely know them and don't know the person that they lost, and on the other hand it shouldn't be too short and risk being flippant.
You'd think I'd have practice over these past few weeks, but I have yet to put a message together that seems to walk the tightrope above.
Or is this just something where no email you put together is going to feel sufficient?
