I need to write a condolences letter to a relative who has lost his wife. It sould be somewhat formal (he's a far relative...). Anyway, my question is whether the following sentence sound good in English: We wish to send our condolences. If anyone has a suggestion of how to continue the sentence, or if there is some conventional way of ending such letters, I would be happy (well, perheps 'happy' is not the best word to use in these circumstances... ) to know. Thank you!
