I would send two separate cards, one thank you, one sorry for your loss.

Suggestion: I’d send the sympathy card first.

I would definitely keep the two cards separate.  Thanking them for their gift is completed unrelated to his father’s passing and vice versa.

Definitely two seperate cards. If you’re ready to send out the thank you notes, you can mail them together. However if the thank you’s are going to take a couple days, just get the sympathy card in the mail.

Send a sympathy card now followed by a thank you in a few weeks.

Just to clarify, by mail them together I mean, mail them in the same batch, two different envelopes and stamps. Do not mail them in the same envelope together.

Sympathy card now, hold onto their thank you card until after the funeral or a couple of weeks and then send that in the mail. I wouldn’t send two separate cards at the same time.
