Question card inside cancer patient

Help I need some opinions, please!

We just found out our new neighbor has lung cancer and has begun kemo treatments. I get the feeling that he isn't really expected to make it, he has done kemo before -2 years ago.

I have made a card but am stuck as to what stamp to use on the inside of the card. We don't know them very well yet so my friendship stamps are out. Here are the options I've come up with so far:

1) Simplicity -order, calm & clarity. It soothes the soul and reaches for elegance

2) Wishing you sunny days ahead - may be too cutsie it is in a square design with flowers also.

3) each day brings it's own joy

4) Thinking of you - large print, simple but is it enough?

5) write my own on the computer, but what would I say


I HATE THESE KINDS OF CARDS!!

I find it hard too. Thinking of you is probably what I would go with....

Thinking of you would be my choice.

Caring thoughts are with you. Just want you to know that you are on my mind and I'm wishing you the best.

I think I'm going with thinking of you, along with a hand written note along the lines of what stmpstone said. Sometimes you get caught up in the emotional side of these type cards and need your friends to help you stop over thinking things.

thanks for the help ya'll!!

Red face Can't believe I am admitting to this!

Hafta admit, Stacy, that when I first saw this thread, I had a really weird, nutsy-cuckoo thought. You know those horrible stories of a sponge or instrument being left inside a surgical patient? That's the thought that popped into my brain when I saw "card inside cancer patient." Yet another example of my whackiness!

I really like your full message. It's inclusive for a situation like this. We have a shorter version which may apply to a variety of potential people situations.

My vote is in align with everyone as in simple, caring but not too over the top.
Good ideas Stacy and the direction you chose sounds perfect.

In retrospect, my post #7 sounds flippant and uncaring. Not at all my intention. Apologies to anyone who might have found it offensive.
