: i was wondering if someone could tell me how to say "to aliki and family, my deepest sympathies
: angela and family, in greek letters, thanks..
Στην Αλίκη και στην Οικογένειά της, δεχθήτε τα πιό ειλκρινή μας συλληπητήρια, Αγγέλα και οικογένεια.
The above literally says: "To Aliki and to her Family, please accept our sincere condolences/sympathies, Angela and family".
Although "sympathy" is a greek word (συμπάθεια) -this word is not used in the context of death. The word "συλληπητήρια" (condolences) is the proper word to be used in the above. Also, "sincere" (ειλκρινή) is more suitable in the greek translation than "deep" or "deepest" (βαθειά).
