Give sympathy cards a personal touch
Dear Carson: In the past year I have had two family members pass away. I have received more than 100 cards. Not one of them was handwritten, which is what the etiquette books say to do.

Also, the family acknowledged every floral arrangement and each gift to the memorial fund with a handwritten note. Was it too much to expect at least one person to make the effort to write a sympathy note? - Expected More Effort
