    Sometimes, its okay to say that you are at a loss as to what to say, as they their loss indescribable. Also, you can say that while nothing you could or would say could make things better, but that you want them to know that you are there for them, should they want to reach out to you.

    Trust me , in situations like this we all search for that special incantation or phrase that will, in one fell swoop express you sorrow, your support and help relieve them from this terrible pain - no such magic verse exists.

    Just tell them you love them and you will always be there for them

    that sums it all up and simply it is all that needs to be said

    I usually write, "You are in our thoughts, as always. We wish you all the strength you need at this time and please get in touch if we can help in any way."

    I don't think there ever can the right words to say in such a tragic situation. I believe the simple act of sending a card says more than any words could say - because you care enough to send that card.
