Hello,
My cousin from US passed away. What is the best way to say sorry to her family. What should we write. We didn't know her well. We met just once.
Thanks a lot

PS when someone die or when someone died

When someone dies... I'm really sorry for your loss islander; unfortunatly I haven't got a clue about what you could write them, since I've never experienced the loss of someone of my family yet... Emotion: sad

Hello Islander

You could say:

"I was very sorry to hear about Y. My condolences to you and your family."

Yes, that's fine; though "We were so sorry..." might be more usual.
