    Re: Unfortunately/sadly for her

    Yes, but consider joining the first two two sentences with a suitable coordinating conjunction. Post below.

    Re: Unfortunately/sadly for her

    Thank you. I would use ''so''. ''She didn't find a job there so she had to move. It was sad for her.''

    Re: Unfortunately/sadly for her

    I forgot to ask. Are ''sadly for her'' and ''unfortunately for her'' also possible?

    Perhaps:

    Unfortunately for her, she had to move.

    You could use "Sadly for her" also if you wish. (Not both at the same time, of course.)

    For example, ''Sadly for her, she had to move.'' ''Unfortunately for her, she had to move.''
