    statement of concern

    Hi Again!
    I'm not sure if this expression fits in the sentence(statement of concern)

    here is the context:

    You don't need to apologize, although you didn't mention something , gave me support when I needed , for me , it was more eloquent than any other statement of concern that someone would give me out of sheer formality.

    I would like to know another ways to say the same.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm not sure I really understand what you are trying to say but if it is not an actual statement (like a note or letter) you could say any gesture of concern although I am kind of guessing here.

    Maybe someone else has understood your sentence better and will comment.

    Sorry if I was vague even in the context provided, the point was that a friend of mine sent me an e-mail telling me that he was sorry because he didn't mention an illness I was going through, however , he was very supportive while I was sick, so, I replied him the part I posted:

    You don't need to apologize, although you didn't mention something, gave me support when I needed, for me, it was more eloquent than any other statement of concern that someone would give me out of sheer formality.

    "You don't need to apologize. Even though there was something you didn't mention, you gave me support when I needed it. For me, it was more eloquent than any statement of concern given to me out of sheer formality."

    Your sentence is far too long, and the phrases are joined incorrectly. It would better to learn how to construct a good short English sentence before trying longer sentences.
