I work in a small office, and one of my co-workers is an adorable Venezuelan woman who’s just the sweetest person ever. She just got a phone call from home saying that her 19 year old sister was killed in a car accident last night, and she is understandably distraught. She’s also worried because she was supposed to take the lead on a big project this week, but of course, that should be the least of her concerns right now.
She’s leaving tomorrow for Venezuela, but we at the office would like to give her a sympathy card before she goes. Her spoken English is excellent, but she’s less confident about her writing and reading skills, and none of her family speaks English, so we’d like to write the note in Spanish. Can anyone help me translate a few lines elegantly?
We are so sorry to hear about the loss of your sister. You and your family are in our thoughts, and we all love you very much. Please take all the time you need to be with your family, and we will be here for you when you return.
Your friends at the office
