Whether you decide to write a funny get well soon message or a religious get well soon card, Picta has hundreds of different designs for 1-hour pickup.

Other ideas to write warmest wishes:

Start with an introduction: Use the person’s name and make sure to address the card appropriately. This can be the right time to use a nickname that you generally call the person.

Make sure to be respectful: for example, if the person is religious, it might be a good idea to add this into the card text. It might not be the right time to joke or take a light-hearted tone with someone you don’t know as well.

Keep it personal: adding in personal details about the recently departed, a favorite memory with the person or something you are looking forward to when they are doing better is always appreciated.
