Show your sympathy with a short and sincere message. Avoid clichés, as these may make you sound insincere. Also, keep the religion beliefs of the family in mind to avoid causing offense. Your message might include fond memories of the departed and words of comfort. If you did not know the departed person well, you could compliment the beauitful funeral service that the family/friends organised and express your condolences to them.
