George Michael just passed away... is there any phrase analogous to "may he rest in peace"? To me at least, that English phrase is emotionally tinged. I mean, I really do feel sad. But of course, I'd never say that phrase regarding the death of a family member because "may he rest in peace" is a little too distant.
So, is there any Japanese phrase that demonstrates genuine respect to someone who just died and who you didn't personally know?
