My deepest sympathies. There's nothing that can really prepare you for something like that.
I'm so sorry.

James, I'll happily shout you a few beers when I'm in Sydney in a few weeks. In the mean time, you have my complete sympathy. My condolences to you and your relatives.

There's not much more that can be said other than sorry to hear about your loss. I hope your friends and family will be there for you over the next several days as you will be for them.

Sorrowful news.
Would you share this gentleman's name with us so that we may say to whom we're raising a glass?
