What do can say to the family when a Jewish person dies?

Almost everything that I’ve been told to say to grieving family members involves some mention of the Christian God or heaven and I just don’t feel right saying this kind of stuff about someone who had a religion of their own and likely faced at least some amount of prejudice from Christians during their lifetime. I’ve heard that many (if not most) Jewish people would prefer that Christian imagery be left out of their grieving process, but I have never heard anyone offer suggestions as to what to say instead. What can I say to the relatives of the deceased that honors the memory of their loved one while still being respectful of their Jewish identity?
