Here is a sample:
I was greatly shocked to learn from your letter about sad and untimely demise of your affectionate mother. May her soul rest in peace. Everyone has to die sooner or later. Man is helpless before the will of God. We can do nothing but pray for the departed soul. To me, she was so kind. I always sought her guidance whenever I was in difficulty. Her death , therefore, is a personal loss to me. But my dear friend, your loss is certainly thousand times more than mine. But no one can avert the decree of fate. Have patient my friend to bear this irreparable loss courageously. Your father has been deprived of a good companion. We cannot imagine his grief or sorrow. May God grant you courage and support in this support in this time of trial ! Amen.
Please Convey my deep and sincere sympathies to your father and other members of your family.
I shall be with you in a day or two.
In last add your name.

I just lost my mother about 3 months ago. You just tell them how sorry you are for his loss. Tell him you will be their for him if he needs anything. Tell him to be patient. That it will take a long time to get over the death of a loved one. I still mourn for my mother. But I know she is ina better place. Tell your friend that his You can make a memorial in her honor at his house. Make a flower bed with her favorite flowers.

That sample is just about the worst condolence letter I've ever read. "Sorry for her loss, but we all must die..." Lordy. How about something simple" I'm sorry for the loss of your mother. She was a kind and generous woman (if she was... You can use other words in this place) and maybe share a memory if you have one.
Forget the lectures about how death is inevitable, you'll get over it, time will heal, etc. This is not the time for it. Acknowledge the death, offer your sympathy. That is enough.

When you write your letter, be sure not to say anything that would cause your friend emotional hurt. He is already grieved by the loss. You do not want this person to get all the more upset, but you do want to express your sympathy. When you write your letter do not start off saying "I'm sorry about your mom dying." You want to start off with something different, perhaps something that has happened in the news lately. Do not make it seem as if the letter is all about sympathy for his mother's death. Include other things too. Do not forget to add a statement which conveys that you are supportive of your friend and want to help him through pained times.

Condolence is a very difficult job one has to perform many times through his life. Anyhow this is life and people are coming and going from this stage of the world. Now you have a question that you want to condole your friend on the death of her mother through a letter.
First of all after formal greetings try to express your condolence in a very effective way through words. Words should be chosen very carefully in a very appropriate manner. The language chosen in the words should be affective and have a great affect on his heart. Then next you should highlight the qualities and good habits of his mother in an expressive way. You should also try to express the qualities of her character in such a way that your friend should feel very much pleased and condoled. Then address few lines to your friend's father, brothers and sisters for condolence. I hope all these expressions of yours in the letter will have a magic effect on your friend and he will realize that you are his true friend and he will feel a bit relaxation from the grief of his mother's death.

You could say something to the effect of "I know, to an extent, what you are going through right now. I really am sorry, and I wish I could help alleviate your pain in any way I can." Let him know that he has a shoulder to cry on, so to speak, or literally. A family in our church just lost a family member and I wrote one of them a letter saying that and she was really glad I had said that. It makes them feel loved. People need to be loved.
