Offering condolences to dying accountant?

My accountant who I've used the last several years to prepare my taxes, just sent a form letter to all his clients saying he's sold his practice because he has cancer that has metastasized to his brain and has a few weeks to live. (I was fully expecting it to be a bill) Do I send a letter or email to offer condolences? Or best to just feel bad for him, and do nothing?

How can I graciously remind someone of my name?

After much struggle, I am finally getting good at remembering people's names. This new skill has opened a new avenue of embarrassment for me, though.
