8 Useful Phrases to Express Condolences in Spanish

Opening Phrases:

Mis sentidas condolencias... My deep condolences

Immediately followed by either one of these:
Lamento mucho esta gran pérdida… I deeply regret this great loss
Lamento mucho la muerte de [nombre] … I deeply regret the loss of [name]

And then immediately followed by either one of these:
Te acompaño en este momento de duelo / de dolor… I am with you in this moment of grief
Te acompaño en el sentimiento... I am with you in this difficult moment

Finally you can close with these two phrases, in exactly this order:

[Name] was a great person whom I had the pleasure of knowing

Puedes contar conmigo para lo que necesites… You can count on me for whatever you need

Of course, these are just mere formalities that you are expected to say in these types of situations. After this introductory stage, you are ready to continue talking normally, as you would do in any other situation.
