One of my friends father died two weeks ago. I sent my friend a sympathy card. Well I got a card from him thanking me for my sympathy.

I am touched at his acknowledgment of my sympathy, but I hardly sent him a card expecting for him to take time while grieving to send me a card thanking me.

When my grandfather died, I received some sympathy cards. I thanked a few people in person when I saw them. But I did not send a card.

The card companies are pissing me off with how many different things you are supposed to send cards for.

A good idea. Let's someone know you appreciated them taking the time from their day to acknowledge your families death.

It's OK as long as you thank the person for thanking you for your sympathy. Of course, you should be thanked back for thanking the person for thanking you for your sympathy.

As long as Hallmark is making $5 for each piece of paper who cares?

I don't think so.

They can call up and say thanks, no need for another card.

Yeah really. I am foreseeing 10 years from now having to send a thank you for your thank you for my thank you for your thank you for my thank your for your birthday card.

You don't send a Thank-You card for receiving a card.

You only send a Thank-You card if you receive a gift, or if the person
helps in person. But not for a card, unless it contained $$$.

It should not be seen as improper. Keep in mind that the thank you card can be considered part of their mourning process. They are thanking you for acknowledging their loss and pain. Your thoughtfulness is a gift greater than anything you can purchase.
