    Synonyms for "συλλυπητήρια"

    Good morning friends,

    Can anyone please suggest a few other ways to express condolences to a friend apart from "συλλυπητηρια"? Is that the only word used in this situation?

    Thank you, in advance. I really appreciate it.

    "Ζωή σε σας" and "Να ζήσετε να τον/την θυμάστε" are two rather common and familiar expressions.

    "Συλλυπητήρια" or "Τα συλλυπητήριά μου" is the most general, to be used on all occasions, formal and informal.

    Thank you, AoratiMelani. These are very helpful. Let me ask you, would it be appropriate to also say "Σας στελνουμε θερμες ευχες"?

    No, this is to be used only on joyful occasions (birth, marriage, etc.). Just stick to what AoratiMelani said.
    Aπ' ό,τι κάλλη έχει άνθρωπος, τα λόγια έχουν τη χάρη / να κάμουσι κάθε καρδιά παρηγοριά να πάρη
    κι οπού κατέχει να μιλεί με γνώση και με τρόπο / κάνει και κλαίσι και γελούν τα μάτια των ανθρώπω.

    Thank you, Themis. I had that feeling - but wasn't sure.
