Message for first birthday card after death of a partner

(7 Posts)

Need to write a card to someone that lost their partner earlier this year.

Struggling to word the message. Any suggestions welcome.

When I leave a birthday message on a bereaved friend's FB (I have a large network of bereaved parents as friends) I put something like 'I hope today is kind to you'
Or 'have a good day and do something nice'

I never do the 'happy Birthday' thing

'Thinking of you on your birthday' in a blank card with a nice picture on the front.

I would say something like "thinking of you. Look after yourself and hope you have a good day".

Thanks.

I have deliberately selected a card which doesn't say 'hope this is the best birthday'.
