Sympathetic, sad concern for someone in misfortune
She sent a condolence message with the flowers.
Thank you for sending the condolence card.
My condolence is with the family who just lost a child.
People in the medical field are very skilled in acts of condolence.
Cobden spoke some words of condolence, but after a time he looked up and said, "There are thousands of homes in England at this moment where wives, mothers and children are dying of hunger."
