I recently saw an obituary for a previous employer's father. Is it inappropriate to use this situation to re-establish contact?

10-15 years ago, my wife and I worked as property caretakers for a wonderful family. We befriended them and their extended family and we think fondly of them. After leaving their employment (10 years ago) we exchanged Christmas cards for a couple of years, but eventually fell out of contact with them.
Recently I saw an obituary for her father and it has me wanting to express my condolences but I also feel it's a shame that we are no longer in touch.
I'd like to send a card, but I'm not sure if it's inappropriate to come out of nowhere with it?
