Sympathy Cards

What do you write in a symapthy card when they pass it around the office? Usually by the time it gets to me, a third have written "you're in my thoughts and prayers", a third "my deepest sympathies/condolences", and a third "I'm sorry for your loss". So I could join one of those teams, but really, how original is that to be the 20th person to write the same exact thing? I could just sign my name, but that's inadequately sympathetic and reeks of arrogance, like I'm signing an autograph. Or try to come up with something original, which is stressful, trying to come up with something poignant and not-cheesy. So basically, when a sympathy card comes my way, I get a frigging migraine.

Yes, I obviously sweat the small stuff.
