Why do some people apologize to someones family when they hear of a family member dying?

I have never apologized for someone dying and I hate it when other people apologize to me when a family member dies.

It's not ours or there fault that the person died. People die all the time.

They always seem to say. I'm sorry that your loved one died. Or I'm so sorry that so and so died.

They're not really apologizing for something they did. It's just a condolence that is easy for them to come out with.
