    You could console the relatives of the deceased by saying:" Please accept my deepest condolences".

    I believe condole is in fact a word and "Please accept my deepest condolences" would be correct.

    Latin condolēre, to feel another's pain : Latin com-, com- + Latin dolēre, to grieve

    Another thing that is said is "I am sorry for your loss".

    You might want to tell Merriam-Webster. They think it is (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/condole).

    Is it correct to say, "Thanks to all of you" ?

    Re- condole condole - Definitions from Dictionary.com

    We can also say when a loved one passed away... " I will see you in heaven!"

    a simple 'our condolences' would do...
