If you want to really be an instrument of encouragement to your recipients, include an appropriate Bible verse with your signature. This gives your dear one something of eternal value upon which to meditate while they rest and recover.
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills,
from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh from the LORD,
which made heaven and earth.
Psalm 121:1 - 2
