    If it's formal, use something like 'commiserations' to express your wish to share grief. I would recommend just saying how you actually felt about the person, rather than trying to be formulaic when dealing with the character of the person who has died.

    I share in your grief and send my love,
    to tear someone up-the news of his/her death tore me up,
    I am so sorry to hear about...
    With a heavy heart-sadly...
    My love and concern are with you always...
    You are continually in my thoughts and prayers,
    My heart and my tears are with you,
    Is there anything I can do for you right now?...
