Got this email from work the other day:
Dear [Company Name] Employee:

It is with deep sadness we regret to inform you [Employee Name] suddenly died yesterday in a car accident while leaving work. We mourn his loss and our deepest sympathies go out to his family.

For the [CompanyName] family we will be having grief counselors available at the 538 Bldg on Tuesday, February 20th. There will be 4 sessions beginning at 9:30 am, and again at 10:30, 11:30 and 12:30. Each session can accommodate up to 15 employees. To be held in the HR Conference Room, 3rd Floor.

Grief is a normal process that proceeds from feelings of sadness and pain to healing and wholeness. You are invited to participate in one of the sessions.

Should there be any questions, please feel free to contact me.

[HR Person]

Though I didn't know "EmployeeName", it's still a sad email to receive. I've had worse though. Ever get an email from someone after they've died?
