Q:

What are good things to say in a get well card?

A:

A written get well card or note should be thoughtful, simple and offer kind wishes, such as saying " We were sorry to hear about your illness. We are thinking of you and wish you a speedy recovery." The closing salutation should reflect the type of relationship between the recipient of the card and the sender. For example, if it is a business relationship, then "Sincerely" may be an appropriate closing salutation.

For friends or family members, the closing salutation can be either "Love" or "Take care." When writing a get well note or card, it is important to address the specific situation that the recipient is experiencing, such as a minor illness or major surgery.

Depending on the seriousness of the health problem and the relationship between the card sender and recipient, there are many other things to say in these types of cards. However, the card sender should avoid using negative or dramatic phrases, as well as referring to a diagnosis in cases of serious illnesses.
