Yes, that's fine. However, If you say that, it means you are referring to the dead person. You might also say, eg to his wife, my thoughts and prayers are with you. 'You' here refers to the wife. It depends on wther you want to focus on the living or the dead.

and i just got a question
in this sentence you have written
It depends on wther you want to focus on the living or the dead
can i use these idioms "either ~ or" or "neither ~ or" instead of "whether ~ or"?
thank you in advance
No, you can't substitute these.
Whether is used to introduce an indirect question and to express doubt or the possibility of choice.
eg Direct question: Do you want tea or coffee?
Indirect question: He asked whether I wanted tea or coffee.
Either and neither don't have this type of meaning.
